Sewing Structures for Artist Books Workshop
Stitching finds its way into the vernacular of artists’ books in many surprising ways.
This workshop will introduce participants to a variety of sewing approaches to book making that result in both traditional and non-traditional book structures. Led by Bonnie Thompson Norman, this workshop will continue the conversation around book arts and their impact in our lives and communities.
No experience necessary, and all materials and supplies provided by the instructor.
$160 | $128 for members
For Bonnie Thompson Norman, books are a passion and a profession. She has been proprietor of The Windowpane Press, a letterpress printing and book arts studio, for nearly forty years as well as working as a hand bookbinder in a commercial bindery for about twenty years.
On evenings and weekends, she teaches classes in printing and bookmaking, and her studio has many things found in a traditional print shop and bindery as well as a wonderful library. Work produced at The Windowpane Press reflect concerns about timeless and/or contemporary issues, offering challenging questions, provocative puns and inspiration in the form of broadsides and artist books. These pieces are included in institutions and collections throughout the United States and in New Zealand, France and England.
