Book Arts

Print Large- Fold Small

Internationally renowned artist Hedi Kyle has been experimenting with single sheet book structures for decades and will be teaching with artist and OCAC Department Head, Barb Tetenbaum to share these structures as options for printed books. Choose a structure and prepare layouts to be printed on one sheet of paper. Images and text are positioned in such a way that they are readable once the print is folded back into the book format. OCAC's four Vandercook Proof Presses will be used, as well as other hand stencil and stamp techniques. Prerequisite: previous experience with simple bookbinding and letterpress (or relief) printing.

Indigo and Books

Learn something new everyday! Inspire your creativity over five days of short projects exploring the possibilities of indigo and shibori dyeing with a relaxed multimedia approach. Learn to make and maintain a small, sustainable indigo vat, refine dye resist techniques, and construct a variety of books and boxes. Each day will feature a new project to introduce a different aspect of shibori technique: practice your patterning and surface design on flat furoshiki wrapping cloths and paper for a hand-bound book. Experiment on alternative materials – leather for a binding, or tyvek for a cover. Create boxes with a bold statement exterior or a surprise lining, or both! You will leave the class with five small projects, a head full of ideas, and a strong desire to dye the world blue. Prerequisite: None
