[BKARTS] Rigid Page Binding workshop in Asheville, NC

Bookworks hosts Rigid Page Binding Workshop
Two-day workshop with Alicia Bailey
Saturday and Sunday, March 25 - 26, 2006 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. (1 hour lunch)
BookWorks is located at:
428 1/2 Haywood Road, West Asheville, North Carolina 28806
(828) 255-8444
Using rigid pages allows an artist to work with materials such as Plexiglas, glass, wood and metal or cardboard. Such techniques are particularly useful for an artist working with sculptural book forms. In this workshop three different rigid page structures are taught through model building.
The first model is adapted from Keith Smith's many explorations of sewing single sheets and across the spine bindings. The second is adapted from Hedi Kyle's Mongolian Book Structure and works especially well with sandwiches of layered, transparent materials. The third model is one of Alicia's own design and utilizes Tyvek hinges sandwiched between pairs of rigid boards. All of the models will be constructed with binders' board but demonstrations and discussions for preparing and using other materials, such as glass, ceramic, wood and metal will be part of the workshop presentation. All model supplies will be provided.
The rigid page workshop doesn't require binding experience and may appeal to artists in other fields, particularly painters and sculptors, who are interested in developing their work into a more interactive format.
Instructor Alicia Bailey of Denver, Colorado has worked as a studio artist for 25 years in a variety of two- and three-dimensional medias, focusing on the book form for the past ten. A familiarity with so many materials is invaluable to her approach to the book form as interactive sculpture. She has been a visiting artist at high schools and colleges throughout the US and has books in numerous public and private collections.
