[BKARTS] Hedi Kyle Workshop

Hedi Kyle will be teaching a two-day workshop on March 25th and 26th at   
Craft Alliance in St Louis. Read below for more information, or visit the 
description at their website: 

The Content, Form and Construction of Books
Enrollment is limited to 12 students, all levels. As versatile containers and 
packaging devices, books accommodate all sorts of texts, images, and even 
objects. Their intriguing mechanical function arouses one's curiosity to explore 
form and construction. This workshop is all about the relationship of content, 
form and construction. With many samples on hand, Hedi will lead you through 
an examination of why some structural features work better than others and she 
will help you evaluate and practice essential skills. You will be able to 
create book structures that can display, protect, and enhance a variety of 
materials and objects. Please collect and bring items that inspire your book works; 
decorative papers, text, drawings, candy wrappers, ticket stubs, photos, bits 
of ribbon and small flat objects. Hedi is appreciated for her inventive 
structures and seemingly boundless creativity. Come and be inspired and informed: as 
a group you will generate ideas and, consequently, unique books.

Hedi Kyle thinks of her books as liberated objects that have escaped their 
expected function but still reflect the intrinsic character of the tradition.   
She recently retired as Head Conservator at the American Philosophical Society 
and is adjunct Professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where 
she teaches book structures in the graduate Book Arts and Printmaking Program. 
  Kyle graduated from the Werk-Kunst Schule in Wiesbaden, Germany and is 
co-founder of Paper and Book Intensive.   She has been giving workshops in the US, 
Canada and Switzerland for over 20 years and her one-of-a-kind constructions 
have been exhibited internationally. 

Please note that we cannot accept on-line registration less than three (3)
