[BKARTS] box making workshop in Iowa City, IA USA

Boxmaking Made Hard
A Workshop with Jody Williams
University of Iowa Center for the Book
Iowa City, IA

February 23rd & 24th
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Taking boxmaking beyond the basics, we will construct a box structure based on a design developed by the instructor built with pre-cut book board and decorative papers. The box will contain drawers, a door/lid, a window and compartments, and can be used to house small objects. The techniques employed can be applied to other, larger boxes and styles. Precision measurement and board cutting will be covered. Samples and discussion will focus on options for text, images and objects for the boxes.
Students should have some previous bookbinding or boxmaking experience.

Jody Williams received an MFA in printmaking from Rochester Institute of Technology and a B.A. in studio arts from Carleton College. She produces work under the name Flying Paper Press and teaches at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Her artists' books, prints and paper works have been featured in over 200 exhibitions in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Williams has been an artist-in-residence at ArtPark, Women's Studio Workshop, the Frans Masereel Print Center in Kasterlee, Belgium, and at Carleton College's Gould Library. She was a recipient of a Minnesota Center for Book Arts/Jerome Foundation Fellowship in 1996, and was honored as the distinguished Artist in Fiber by the Minnesota Crafts Council in 1999.
