Sixth Annual Book Arts Series: Workshop
This artist’s one-of-a-kind, sculptural Artists’ Books utilize several different techniques employing handmade paper and then incorporating these three dimensional images within the books’ ‘pages’ or covers. This workshop will focus on the cast image and demonstrate to the participant how exactly the image evolves from its conception through the mold making process, and finally to the actual casting itself.
The Book Arts Series has grown to become a wonderful, annual event here in Morristown. There is a reasonable fee for the workshops thanks to generous, private support, but seating is limited so please register early to secure a seat. Refreshments will be provided for each session beginning 30 minutes prior to the start time listed above (please note the lecture this year is on a Thursday evening). For more information, please call 973-538-6161 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
