About the Instructor
Catherine Alice Michaelis has been exploring what an artist book can be for over 30 years. She works with antique printing presses, movable type, and any printable medium she finds, including: paper, fabric, film, magnets, and veneer to summon a dialog with Nature. When she isn’t printing, she’s sewing unique works on fabrics that more intimately explore gender, ageism, and memory loss. Catherine pushes her creative practice through writing, videopoetry, direct animation, and direct dyeing from plants. Collaborating and participating in community is part of Catherine’s practice, evident in her work with scientists, writers, visual artists, and musicians. Bringing other artists forward and building community is something she believes in and does.
