2024 Workshops 


IN PERSON SUMMER WORKSHOPS


Design in the Details: Bookbinding Adaptations & Variations June 9-15, 2024

Wells College Book Arts Center, Aurora, NY

This workshop will cover inventive designs for physical book pages, inspired by historic bindings and ephemera. Learn how to incorporate photos or prints into a book, mount loose material, hinge and fold in oversized pages, and how to create pockets, foldouts, envelopes, closures, volvelles, and more. We’ll bind a series of sample pages into an album structure in the process. This workshop will be part of the Wells College Book Arts Summer Institute You can click through to https://arts.wells.edu/event/book-arts-summer-institute-2024/ for more information and to register. We'll have a great time!


Bound and Unbound: Photos, Prints and Enclosures July 1-5, 2024 

Maine Media Workshops + College, Rockport, ME

This class will explore multiple ways photographs, prints, or other artwork can be shown in both bound and unbound forms. This workshop covers a variety of bindings while considering the incorporation of photographs or prints, especially the ability to add uninterrupted double-page spreads, as well as a number of enclosures to hold both loose items and bound volumes. The workshop begins with a few simple forms for small editions or self-promotion and continues with hardcover structures and a selection of enclosures. Hope some of you might join in!

I want to express my appreciation with grateful thanks, not only for my own teachers, but for the historic bookmakers from many cultures, whose generous sharing of their knowledge and innovations whether through workshops or publications, has informed my own artwork and my teaching.
