Sequence: Journey of Expressive Calligraphy with Experimental Marks & Textures

Featuring Yukimi Annand, a highly respected and internationally known master calligrapher and teacher, the workshop will start with creating marks with different writing tools and any found objects. You will then design alphabets with those new marks to be able to write your chosen texts in various ways. The class examines writing speed, pressure, the directions of strokes, and the relationship between letters for making effective and expressive textures. The exercises include layering different mediums and use of colors. Basic design layout, composition and use of line and space in Japanese calligraphy will be discussed. In the end, you will assemble selected exercise pieces to construct accordion books, folding screens and/or a series of individual pages to present your journey in sequence. Join us for three special days with extraordinary teacher, Yukimi Annand.
Prerequisite: Some experience in calligraphy is recommended.

Wood Type Printing Meets Drum Leaf Binding

Spend day one of this workshop using the wood type collection at OCAC to letterpress print your pages, experimenting with type as image utilizing overprinting and ink transparency. With a little pre-planning, exciting and surprising compositions are revealed. On day two, explore the versatility of the drum leaf binding—an ideal binding for 2D artists as it provides a page with unbroken imagery and no gutter. Each two-page spread can be its own print, painting or photograph. This structure offers a simpler, more intuitive way of laying out a book, and is perfect for small editions.

Exploring Structural Details for Better Books

Books, composed of fairly simple elements, gain beauty and strength through repetition and the compelling use of materials. But each element must also contribute to the book's function and durability. Explore dozens of ways to create hinges, board attachments, pockets, pleats, closures and more that are structurally sound and adaptable to a wide range of both traditional and unconventional materials. You will examine Roberta's large collection of books and book-inspired objects that use unusual construction. With this inspiration and instruction you will make a small journal that incorporates your favorite devices with the goal of transforming your ideas into a beautiful, functional journal.
