Illustrated Sculptural Bookworks

with Lucy Roscoe
Saturday, July 13; 1–4pm CT

The joy of book arts is that with a few simple skills you can do extraordinary things. In this in-person workshop, we will use traditional bookbinding, paper-cutting, and folding techniques to explore how books can be used sculpturally to tell stories. These unusual storytelling artifacts are as much a ‘sculptural illustration’ as an ‘illustrated artist’s book.’

Looking at examples, we will spend the first part of this informal workshop playing with different book forms and manipulating them into storytelling objects. In the second part of the workshop, choose a form and focus on telling your own story through your chosen book form. Bring along any ideas you have. You will come away with a selection of unusual creative books and lots of ideas!

All skill levels welcome
