I will be teaching a one day workshop at the Center for Book Arts in New York, NY on October 1 (Sun), 10am-4pm!
Drumleaf is a simple glued book structure that is ideal for anyone looking to make books with their own work as the content. The structure lays flat, eliminates the need to print on the front and back of sheets, and can be created using almost any kind of paper! In this one day workshop, students will learn the basics of the Drumleaf structure with hard covers. Discussion will focus on best practices, problem solving, and variations of the structure.
I will be teaching a one day workshop on Zines at Inky Editions in Hudson, NY on October 15 (Sun), 10am-4pm!
In this 1-day workshop we will learn to make a few types of zines, focusing on marrying imagery and form together. Each student will create simple accordion fold books, instant books, and pamphlet stitch books that they will collage, draw, stamp, write, or print on, to create beautiful and one-of-a-kind zines about their life or interests. Discussion will focus on types of paper, page layout, and problem solving as well as talking about self-publishing, small press fairs, and the fandom surrounding zine history. No previous print, book, or zine making experience needed; this class is great for writers, poets, artists, self-publishers or artistic dabblers.
