Martha’s comments about this workshop:
The popular “Painted Book Adventure” workshop is happening again this year in Lumsden. This workshop will introduce the participants to a unique process of creating a hardbound book in which the painted interior text sheets and the cover are created simultaneously. Initial papers and fabric cover are created using traditional wheat paste techniques in contemporary ways in combination with a variety of multi-media techniques. The focus will be on combining text and imagery using stitching/collage/multi-media to create and sustain a concept through the length of a book. All the essential bookbinding skills are taught in the workshop and no special calligraphic skills are needed. A sense of exploration and adventure and a willingness to try something new are definite assets.
