Sewing Structures for Artist’s Books Workshop
Stitching finds its way into the vernacular of artists’ books in many surprising ways. This one-day workshop will introduce participants to a variety of sewing approaches to book making that result in both traditional and non-traditional book structures. No experience necessary. All materials and supplies provided by the instructor.
