The bookmaking workshop has been cancelled for this Saturday due to low response for workshop participation.

Bookmaking Workshop with Elizabeth Curren

Bookmaking Workshop

With Elizabeth Curren

 Saturday April 4, 12 – 4pm

George Mason University, Fairfax campus

School of Art Building, Room 1009 (the print studio)

In this workshop participants will learn about a variety of book structures and how to create them. The artist will demonstrate some book structures that are a bit outside of the regular codex.  All of these structures rely on decent papers, measuring, folding, cutting and simple adhesives.
Participants are asked to bring a variety of nice paper to work with for their own books and to share, cutting tools, self healing cutting mats, triangles, rulers, good scissors, pencils, PVA adhesive and glue brushes, archival glue sticks, bone folders, and a notebook to keep track of things. If you do not have these materials, we will have some that participants can share.

To sign up for this workshop please email Sarah Zuckerman

at szucker2@gmu.edu by Friday April 3, 2015 to reserve a space.
