Join WNC artist and former elementary school art teach Ruby Bock for an afternoon of experimentation and exploration. You will create several small books that can easily be reproduced at home and that can be used for journals, sketchbooks, scrapbooks, kids’ school projects, and general amusement.
In this workshop we will:
-explore simple yet clever bookmaking techniques.
-review and use basic elements of art and design.
-experiment with a variety of materials (assorted papers and fabrics; pencil, color pencil, ink; washi and other kinds of tape; found objects including tea bags) and a variety of techniques (hand and machine sewing, taping, gluing, wiring).
- and … hopefully … have fun, try new ideas, get inspired.
No special skills are required – all levels are welcome.
A materials fee of $10 will provide everything you need, but you are encouraged to bring special items from home, such as favorite/meaningful papers and fabrics (even very small pieces), beads, buttons, found objects, photos.
