Artist Books from Found Materials

Bind your own books from alternative and eco-friendly materials, then fill them with a variety of techniques like cutting, folding, stenciling, printing, image transfers, painting and dyeing, collage, writing and more. Together and individually, explore your neighborhood and home environments to hunt for treasures to incorporate. The studio will become a museum of unusual materials for making and embellishing one-of-a-kind books. Leave with your own collection of inspired, personal, visually complex books. Limit 8 students
