Artist Book Making IntensiveCynthia McGuirl, Abbie Read, and Sandy Weisman
In this series of workshops three Maine book artists will explore a variety of book structures, decorative techniques, and content. Each day there will be one primary focus for the day, and at least one auxiliary technique that can be completed in short bursts of time, perhaps over lunch, or while you’re waiting for something to dry.
Participants will leave with several completed books, a lot of handouts for further explorations, and some other useful skills and decorated papers for future bookmaking.
