Lisa Beth Robinson - A Gathering is Another Name for a Signature - August 7-8, 2020 - $218.00
Workshop Description:
After a brief presentation on contemporary artist’s book works, students will build a rotating accordion structure using the pamphlet stitch. This structure requires turning the book with every new signature, gathering the information as the reader moves through the experience. Writing prompts and text-generating exercises will help students design content, whether prose, poetry or free-form exploratory writings. Books will include pockets for storing some of the items found on a field trip. Pamphlet variations, translucency/windows, and guards, and several non-traditional bindings will also be covered. All you need to gather is your imagination!
Session runs August 7-8, 2020
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily, open studio hours on select days.
Tuition includes lunch on the first day. Materials and lodging are not included.
