DB/SoB Joint Weekend Workshops
Fill That Page! A Bookbinder's Guide to Creative Design Practice
Tutor: Sue Doggett
Dig out your paint boxes, coloured pencils, inks and messy materials for a weekend of practical, experimental creative work. Explore how to approach that blank piece of paper and the beginnings of a design. This weekend course will give you a range of techniques to try out and will challenge you to fill that page. For those who wish to develop their paper into pages, there will be further discussion on how to take your 2D work into a number of simple book forms. The two days will include a series of demonstrations, practical creative exercises and plenty of guided workshop time. Sue will also talk about her own approach to creating artists' books and bindings and how to build the content of a book, starting from scratch.
