About this Class

Starting with printing color reduction woodcut images, which become the pages of a hand-bound or accordion book, students will create their own artist's book that generates a multilevel sensory experience. Students will find inspiration from master printmaker Karen Kunc, who opens the creative process with insightful mentoring. Concepts for invention and good fun will be directed in a collaborative atmosphere.


  • Registration closes April 5. 
  • Bring a lunch. BARN has a refrigerator and microwave on the lower level.


Students will create a hand-bound or accordion folded book.



This class is open to motivated beginners.
