A one-day workshop held at the max.ink Project Shop at Studio for Arts + Works (S.A.W.) with instructor Alicia Bailey of the Denver-based Abecedarian Artists Books. Students will be introduced to creative and innovative book structures using that most wondrous of humble materials, paper. This class is suitable for all skill levels, ages 16 and older.
Inspired by innovators in the book arts field such as Claire van Vliet and Hedi Kyle, the focus will be on form and structure rather than content. Each student will produce a collection of sample books that can be used as reference and inspiration for further projects. Some of the structures we will explore include the Blizzard Book, Flat Reverse Hinge, and three variations on an accordion fold.
All tools and materials provided.
Class time includes 1 hour for lunch (local options available upon request; or bring your own lunch, microwave available).
