No experience is necessary for this hands-on, fun ‘starter class’ that will introduce you to skills, processes, and vocabulary to jump-start your confidence in this fascinating world of Book Arts. We’ll start by making the basic form of the Artists’ Accordion Book. Then we’ll make variations on this form to inspire your own creativity. You’ll take all of your books home with directions (printout or electronically emailed) for making additional books on your own.
Susan M. Callan has been a devotee of Book Arts for over 25 years. In the mid 2000’s, she was invited to join a 12-artist team, each teaching their own discipline under the auspices of The Creativity Center. In that Center’s 5-year run here on Bainbridge, she discovered the genuine joy of sharing her Book Arts knowledge and skills with enthusiastic students. She’s been teaching (and, of course, still learning) all aspects of Book Arts and creativity ever since. Since 2017, she has taught BOOK ARTS; THE CREATIVITY FACTOR at the national Focus On Book Arts conference in Forest Grove, Oregon, in addition to several other venues closer to home..
