Artists’ Books: Building Narrative

with Radha Pandey
Saturdays: August 15, 22, 29, September 5, 12, 19; 10am-12pm CDT

An introduction to artists’ books, this workshop will focus on the juxtaposition of text and image, page layout, and pacing to create a narrative artist’s book.

Learn six book structures and several methods of image making: hand printing linoleum blocks, gelatin printing, pochoir, trace monotypes, and paper cutting. Quick exercises at the beginning of each meeting will free-up the hands and mind before moving onto more complex structures and concepts. Each participant will produce a book which they may choose to edition and exchange with other participants by mail.
