About the event

In this five-day workshop students will explore the possibilities of the handmade book. Course will provide instruction, demonstrations, and talks on an array of book structures. The approach is to teach you from start to finish how to design and select materials, edit and sequence imagery, and to make a book that furthers the narrative content of your work. You will be introduced to a structure a day, learn how to make a mockup, and have plenty of studio time to work on your own version. 

This course will set you up to work confidently at your studio in five  basic structures that are the foundation of bookbinding.

This is an all levels class. The beginner will have enough support to dive into the book making process. More advanced bookbinders will have the opportunity to experiment with these structures with ample studio time to experiment and discover new possibilities. 

All students will need to have photographic or other mediums of work (watercolors, poems, drawings, prints) that have a narrative or storyline that is in development. We will be working on editing, sequencing and pacing of these images in the book form. You will be asked to bring this content to class already printed, in multiples and different sizes so you have enough to work with throughout the week. All other materials provided. You may bring your own book cloth, papers, and other supplies to make the book your own.

Come join us in exploring the artists book in a supportive and fun environment. Give yourself the gift of time with your work to explore and play.

* Studio located in Potomac, Maryland.  Address will be given upon registration.

** All ELP writing groups will have a joint end of season public reading.  Date and Location to be announced.
