Workshop: Artist Books with Monica Oppen

is offering this two-day workshop opportunity:

Drum-leaf Binding is one of the best binding styles for printmakers!  It is a simple but adaptable binding style which can be either a codex or a concertina, can have pop-outs, fold-outs, cut-throughs and sewn sections added without the binding becoming more difficult.

In this workshop the bookbinding basics will be covered as well as an exploration of the possibilities of extending the binding into its more exciting contortions.  Participants can use proof prints, rejected prints, found material, decorative papers to create the book.  Text can be printed using rubber stamps, typewriter, cutting lino or stencils etc.  This workshop is suitable for beginners and those who have had some binding experience.

Guest book-artist, printmaker & writer, Monica Oppen, has trained & worked as a hand binder & has 20 years of binding experience.  She has bound her own work & collaborated with other artists.  Her books are held in public & private collections in Australia and overseas.

WHEN:     Saturday and Sunday 27 & 28 May, 2017
WHERE:  Warringah Printmakers Studio, Cnr Condamine & Lovett St, Manly Vale, NSW
TIME:        10am – 4pm
