Louise is conducting two workshops at Firestation Print Studio in January. 🦆
(1) ‘Watercolouring and making a book’
Thursday 18th of January, 2018
10am to 4pm
Louise Jennison is besotted with paper for its adaptable, foldable, cut-able, concealable, and revealing nature. Her limited edition artists’ books, and other works hard to pin down, are often made collaboratively with fellow artist, Gracia Haby. In their artists' books, prints, zines, drawings, and collages, they use play, and perhaps the poetic as well, to reel you in closer.
Their artists' books can be found in the collections of: Artspace Mackay; the university libraries of Deakin; Melbourne; Monash; and RMIT; Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery; National Galleries of Victoria; and Australia; the State Libraries of Australia; New South Wales; Victoria; and Queensland; the Tate; and the University of West England.
In this one day workshop with Louise you will cut and fold a concertina book, complete with cover. You will also have the chance to watercolour upon this folded stage from cover to cover.
Bring your imagination, watercolours, and favourite brushes. All bookbinding equipment and paper is included. (2) ‘Five instant gratification books to make’
Friday 19th of January, 2018
10am to 4pm
In this one day workshop, you will have the chance to make five small books. There will be some stitching, a little gluing, a slice of cutting, and much folding.
Bring your willingness to explore, and leave with a library of your own artists’ books and a world of knowledge. All bookbinding equipment and paper is included.
