Title: Handmade Book Making: Devotion, Memory, Collecting with Doug Baulos

Type of Workshop: Bookmaking, Paper Craft

Instructor: Doug Baulos

Date: Feb 16, 2019

Time:  Saturday 10 am -4 pm

Price: $110/100

Students will learn to sew multiple bindings onto tapes to create a unique sketchbook journal with a historic past. For beginner and advanced students alike – we will investigate the uses of constructing envelopes and pockets within the journal. The technique of bookbinding will be fused with the concept of memory, observation and idea generation. Knowledge of this form will allow for a lot of future spontaneous art processes and play and possibilities.

 

You’ll also learn to sew historically important bindings in the style of devotional 17th and 18th century psalm books.  French herringbone tapes structures will be combined with Coptic binding styles to create a unique journal. Advanced students will have the option to create a dos a dos. The class will discuss the symbolism of devotional book, memory gathering and collecting, and how to case in the book in a unique way and make experimental clasps for books.
