This course will provide you with some exciting methods of printmaking and bookmaking. The morning session will be devoted to learning printmaking techniques. Monoprinting, using stencils, and creating plates out of illustration board and rubber blocks are among the processes we will be exploring. During the afternoon sessions, we will be creating artist books such as accordion books, chapbooks and instant books — all easy and good formats for the printed matter you produced in the morning. You'll go home with a fun set of books you created as well as valuable new skills!
