Event description

Description

Printmaking in the morning, bookmaking in the afternoon! Come prepared for a playful day of creating book covers without a printing press, then learn to sew a coptic stitched book using your favourite print. A whole world of possibilities will open up to you. You’ll go home with a handmade treasure - a personal sketchbook/journal, and a stack of gorgeous textured papers you can use for other art projects.

Participant Supply List:

  • apron/smock

  • A collection of texture materials: pressed leaves, or grasses, lace, stamps, cheesecloth, rug gripper, bubble wrap, burlap, etc,… (we can share!)

  • a package of baby wipes

  • optional: if you have a small awl (for poking holes in paper), please bring it along.


A kit will be provided and includes the use of a gelatin printing plate, brayer and paint, all paper, and book making supplies. ( a $35 kit fee is included in the over all registration fee)

A light lunch will be provided.

About the workshop facilitator -- Heidi Hunter runs with scissors. Shifting from an international career as a mime, she has found her voice creating visual theatre where her art studio is now the stage. There, her hands dance with fabric, and her heart sings in colour. Her stunning, award-winning art quilts will warm your walls, as do her luxurious hand-dyed wearables long to drape over your shoulders. An "artist's artist", Heidi is a gifted and experienced teacher, and a forever student. Driven by colour and obsessed with the creative process, Heidi lives to dye...and dies to quilt.
