1 week course || PRINT 650 001 || 1 credit hours || Lab Fee: $50
Participants will learn to carve and print wood block narratives that are bound into book forms. Using the relief print and some writing, participants will learn single sheet, saddle stitch, perfect and accordion style bookbinding. The binding style of each book is considered with regard to the content it is presenting. Through examples and demonstrations students will learn about papers, using the tools of relief printmaking, as well as tools and materials of bookbinding. Emphasis is on content, self expression, and acquiring skills. No prior experience necessary, writers welcome.
