[BKARTS] Hedi Kyle workshop at Cooper Union, August 9-12, New York, NY



Would you like to be able to create beautiful handmade books? Now you can
learn how. The Cooper Union Continuing Education Department offers a great
way to spend a few days this summer. This four day workshop with renowned
book artist and book conservator, Hedi Kyle, is a wonderful way to learn
the ins and outs of book making.


Here is the course description: As versatile containers and package devices, books accommodate text, imagery, textured materials, and objects. Mechanical function and intriguing structure share elements with architectural spaces and forms found in nature. The book can be a portable hoard for the ordinary and the fantastic. This class offers a wide range of bookmaking techniques based on sewing, folding, lacing, and interweaving. Students learn to combine characteristic features of codex, concertina, and scroll to arrive at unique constructions. The course explores such diverse bookmaking techniques as frottage, collage, stenciling, and low-tech printing. Students should bring to the first class objects they imagine might be included in their books.


August 9-12, 10am -5pm. Cooper Union (51 Astor Place) New York, NY 10003-7120
