3D6963 ART BOUND – CREATING A UNIQUE BOOK
Tutor: TRACEY BUSH
Dates: 3 DAYS TUESDAY 9 MAY – FRIDAY 12 MAY
ABOUT THE COURSE:
Enjoy exploring ways of creating a unique book. It is particularly suitable if you have lots of imagery on paper (e.g. your own drawings, writing, prints, patterns, photographs etc.) and wish to now transform this material into book form. You will explore a range of simple book formats, the tutor will demonstrate a range of different book structures and hand binding techniques. General studio bindery practice is also discussed.
By the end of the course you should have produced at least eight samples of different simple book forms, as well as completed a more considered individual book. You will also gain an awareness of some contemporary artists’ books.
