Bookbinding workshop for book artists
This event is now in the past.
Five-day workshop with internationally renowned New York book artists Keith Smith and Scott McCarney.
The popularity of hand bookbinding has grown in tandem with the quality of desktop publishing and affordability of print-on-demand. This workshop mixes time-tested techniques of hand binding with innovative formatting inspired by digital printing. From simple folded and glued structures to a complex sewn board binding, participants will gain skills and learn techniques to solve problems of physical structure and inspire visual concepts. Structures are applicable to small edition as well as one-of-a-kind binding. Some bookbinding and/or art making experience helpful but not required.
Prior to the workshop Keith and Scott will be giving a talk about their work. See the Events section for details.
Proudly supported by The Siganto Foundation.
