A workshop on
Contained Thinking: Handmade Books and Zines
When: March 16, 2018
About the workshop:
Books and zines create a tactile means to contain and share images, stories and even research. This workshop introduces students to several basic handmade book structures and teaches how plan, print and self-produce inexpensive, yet intricate, themed books.
Students should bring along a digital folder of photographs, writing, poems, sketches, and anything else that could be used inside of a test book. Photographs from a camera phone will work great. Just have them ready on your computer, Google Drive, or emailed to yourself prior to the workshop. No solid plan is required beforehand, but it may help to have a small archive of inspiring materials on hand.
Please bring a laptop with Adobe Acrobat installed and an active Google Docs account to participate fully in this workshop. Both are available for free
Lunch and all other materials will be provided.
