In this four-part series we'll explore a variety of art techniques and simple book binding. No experience is necessary and experimentation is encouraged. Please join us for any and all in the series. Class four times November through January.

Part 1 - November 12, 10am to 3pm
In the first class we'll work with watercolors, pen and ink, and gouache to fill simple folded books and basic sewn structures. We'll take a playful approach to these media that are often found challenging — no previous experience is required.

Part 2 - December 17, 10am to 3pm
In the second class, we will explore expressive line and bold blocks of color. We'll cut stencils, carve stamps, and use basic mono-printing techniques for use in our simple flip, match, post, and stick books.

Part 3 - January 14, 10am to 3pm
We'll get a bit messy in our third class. We'll explore positive and negative space making prints from printing plates made of firm gelatin. Then we'll clean up and work on book forms that accommodate removable pages.

Part 4 - January 28, 10am to 3pm
There's a lot to do in the fourth class. We'll explore silkscreen printing as well as some collage techniques. The book form will be a bit more complicated. We'll make book cloth from our silkscreened linen and use it to cover our hand-sewn books.

Fee: $85 per session or $300 for all four sessions
