THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL! DIY Hand-Printed Artist Books Design, Bind, & Unwind Workshop Date/Time: February 27th / 12-4pm / FREE 12-1pm Artists Talk by Timothy Frerichs & Jill Kambs in conjunction with their exhibition The Log Lines on view January 29th-March 4th, 2016. Create beautiful hand-printed books from affordable everyday materials! Participants will learn two DIY printmaking techniques before following step-by-step instructions to assemble and bind your own pamphlet book. We will utilize gelatin printing as a means for image making and Xerox transfer printing to incorporate typed text. Gelatin printing is an inexpensive, low-tech, and non-toxic printing method that achieves elegant results equally appropriate for home enthusiasts and professional printers. Xerox transfer printing is a low-cost, simple method for placing printed text and black & white photographic imagery within a folded structure. A printed word bank will be provided for constructing DIY haikus to add to your one-of-a kind artist books. This workshop is ideal for teachers, writers, artists, and craft enthusiasts of all ages. No experience necessary, all ages welcome. Instructor: Jill Kambs Pre-registration is required for all workshops at WNYBAC. You do not need to pre-register for the Artists' Talk.
