Course Description:

Over the course of three sessions you will learn a set of at-home techniques and structures for creating engaging artist’s books with little surprises such as storage compartments, peek-through cut outs, and custom patterned paper. In the first session we will learn how to print patterned papers using simple supplies at home. Next, we will explore masu boxes, a folded box structure that can used to create a variety of book objects with storage compartments. And in the last session, we will learn to make a suite of single-page folded book structures and look at how to incorporate cut-outs to take advantage of both sides of the paper.

ProjectEmmersive wants to ensure that all guests can experience this installation safely, thus only one person will be allowed in the space at a time and all guests will be required to wear a mask and sanitize their hands before entering. We understand that still not everyone will feel safe or comfortable coming to the space in person, so an online experience will also be available later in June… stay tuned!
