Textile Arts LA Hosts Bookmaking with Sue Ann Robinson
January 25 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
On Saturday, January 25th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, please join Textile Arts LA for this all-day workshop, Bookmaking: Art Material Storage with Sue Ann Robinson. Learn to make a beautiful and functional artist’s book, using a “baggie book” structure to store samples of thread, fiber, dye, swatches, or anything you can dream up!
This six-hour workshop will teach a useful concertina spine fold technique and then how to attach archival bags to the spine, and end the afternoon with covers. Examples will be provided to ensure that multiple sizes and uses for the Baggie Book can be adapted to your particular needs and will provide for reusable pages. Materials will be provided for one size book. All participants will leave with one Baggie Book ready to use.
