I Sing the Book Electric – Susan Mills
FRIDAYS 7PM / 10 SESSIONS BEGINNING FEBRUARY 3
This workshop investigates the body of the book – the internal body and the external body and all the places in between. We will work with pencil and bonefolder, with writing and folding, with drawing and sewing, and with page-turning, painting, printing and gluing; altering, cutting, inking and placing. We will consider historical and modern book structures, visual poetry, artist’s books, collaborations between poets and artists, and visual art with text. Most of all, we will make books every week in class and between classes – chapbooks, artist’s books, one-of-a-kind books, editions, scrolls, collaborations, boxes, booklets, accordions, concertinas… . Please note that there is an additional $20 material fee. A list of simple hand tools will be provided at the first class.
Maximum capacity is 15.
