Book art has existed for thousands of years and can be seen in one form or another throughout all human history. In this fascinating, day-long workshop, you and your friends will learn how to make your own simple, yet elegant, book structures that are perfect for collecting memorabilia and journaling. Book artist, Karen Hardy, will teach you how to incorporate a variety of unique papers and materials into your books. Then, you’ll learn how to add features like built in pockets and expandable pages using basic origami techniques. While the focus will be on making blank book models that you can use as a reference for future projects, Karen will also cover ways to generate content for your books with stenciling and collage techniques as time allows.
