Print to Book
I just thought I'd let you all know that on the weekend of the 9/10 of August I will be in Sydney, hanging out at the excellent Warringah Printmakers' Studio, teaching a lovely little weekend course called Print to Book.
It's really a course for printmakers who want to extend their practice into the form of the artist's book, to teach them some practical making and binding skills and throw around some ideas on form and content.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, there are plenty of places left, and the more of you in the class, the more money I get. Heh, no, bugger the money. It's always fun to get a group of people together and encourage them to take a blade and needle to the pile of print proofs that have been sitting in the bottom map drawer for years. Be brave! Be bold! is the credo. There's no such thing as a mistake, it's pure serendipity and a large whack of derring do.
And actually, even if you're not a printmaker -- if you just want to muck around with simple book structures, come along. I'm very accommodating :)
