[BKARTS] Book arts classes at Castle Hill, Cape Cod

Hi Everyone
I wanted to advertise a couple of classes I will be teaching this summer at Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill. Truro is a great place to be in the summer and very close to Provincetown, MA which is great fun.
July 17 - July 21
Mon - Fri, 9 - 12
5 Sessions, $300
This workshop opens with an overview and discussion of different binding structures, anatomy of the book, and the materials and tools that are fundamental to craft bookbinding. We'll discuss the basic tool kit, the importance of paper grain, as well as folding paper and preparing signatures for sewing. There will be a thorough, hands-on approach to learning about bookbinding. Focusing on a traditional sewn structure, the class will sew multiple signatures on linen tapes and then build a cover for the text block. Students continue with this structure, as repetition and practice are integral to learning any new craft, and end up with two full-cloth, case-bound books. Other book structures will be taught as time allows. A great starting point for people curious about bookbinding.
From Block to Book: Linocut Prints for Artist's Books
July 24- July 28
Mon - Fri, 9 - 12
5 Sessions, $300
The direct printmaking process of hand printing from linoleum blocks will be used to create a variety of colorful images in an adventurous printmaking approach onto willing papers that then move into being a visual book. Options will be presented that consider print needs and peculiarities for the alternative presentation format of bookworks. Simple structures will be developed and adapted, that can be pasted, sewn or assembled in interesting ways. An important theme is innovation within simplicity, figuring out materials for that "workable" feeling, and using your own means of technology.
