In this class various materials will expand our knowledge of the book as a 3D story and art object. This is a hands-on exploration of materials that will make new and exciting relationships of shape, dimension, and text. You will create advanced artist books that are unique and will develop your art vision.

Students will use traditional and contemporary methods of binding, papermaking, paper casting, and repurposing of materials in a workshop experience that is intensive, fun, and applicable to learning about art, sculpture, and books in completely original ways.
