Welcome to the exciting world of bookmaking! Whether you are interested in developing a cool new hobby, have an interest in zines (if you don’t know what this is you will in the class!) or have an interest in creating unique artists’ books this class is for you! This class is ideal for the newbie and for those with some experience. Learn the process of paste paper, Gelli plate printing, and Japanese marbling, called Suminagashi. Decorative papers will be incorporated into book structures such as single sheet, a single flag, and an accordion with a hardcover. In your final book project you will also work on content (words, drawings, collage, etc) for your book. You will leave the class with approximately 9 books (5 zines and 4 small books) and enough beautiful paper to inspire you on your bookmaking journey!
Jane Ploughman, bookmaker and printmaker from New Haven, Vermont, and I, Susan Smereka will co-teach this workshop. With two instructors you are guaranteed plenty of one-on-one instruction.
