[BKARTS] New Don Glaister Workshop-- UT!

For more information: bookartsprogram@xxxxxxxx or 801.585.9191

Shape, Scrape and Paint: Altering Surfaces June 4th through 7th
Wednesday through Saturday, 9:00-5:00

For as long as there have been books, bookmakers have applied
distinctive, expressive designs to the covers of their creations. This
two-part workshop explores historic decorative techniques in conjunction
with modern possibilities: gold and blind tooling alongside applications
of plastics, wood veneers, metals and other surface alterations. Get
ready to sand, shape, scrape, paint, draw, emboss, deboss, and craft the
tools required for the execution of these techniques. Design and produce
several plaquettes for use as examples in future book projects.
Participants work primarily on leather surfaces, so experience in gold
tooling and leather binding is helpful but not necessary. 
Celebrated book artist Don Glaister lives and works on Vashon Island,
Washington. Don incorporates unexpected materials, visual humor, and
spontaneous expression in book forms structured around classical,
European, binding traditions. His recent work includes two editions of
artists' books, Brooklyn Bridge: A Love Song and The Pearl Necklace.
Partial funding provided by the Utah Arts Council.

Instructor: Don Glaister, Washington
Place: Book Arts Program at the J. Willard Marriott Library, University
of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT Workshop fee: $300; Materials fee: $55
