In this two-day workshop, we will be creating our own artists books that will be a totally unique representation of your individual creativity. We will all start off with a commercially-made book, that will be completely gutted and reconstructed in a very personal way so as to be unrecognizable in the end. This workshop is the perfect combination of project and technique. Through the creation of your artist book, you will learn several unique and versitile ways to bind single sheets of paper. A variety of mixed media techniques will be reviewed and in a manner of speaking, we will be "painting" without using paint. You will be creating pages in your own artistic voice while at the same time being guided through a series of lessons which will include making pockets, folds, flaps and mini-books, altering personal photos, creating mail art, trying out various approaches to collage, using found objects, making commercial products your own, and more. You will leave with a very special handmade book and a large number of mixed media techniques that can be applied to an endless number of future projects.
