[BKARTS] Rigid Page Binding Workshop in Portland, OR

The Northwest Chapter of the Guild of Bookworkers

Rigid Page Binding Workshop

Using rigid pages allows an artist to work with
materials such as plexiglass, glass, wood and metal or
cardboard. Such techniques are particularly useful for
an artist working with sculptural book forms.
Bookbinding experience is not required. In this
workshop five 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 binding 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.
 The fourth is a variation of a stiff-leaf structure.
The fifth is a wire-edge structure and will be the
last taught and only if time allows. The models will
be constructed
with binders' board and other prepared materials.
Demonstrations, discussion and handouts for  preparing
and using other materials, such as glass, ceramic,
wood and metal will be part of the workshop

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
