THE PSPF ARTIST’S BOOK-MAKING WORKSHOP: A two-day workshop with Michelle Dunn Marsh and a rotating guest faculty.
Thursday, May 11th, 9:00am – 4:45pm & Friday, May 12th 9:00am – 2:00pm
Realizing your work in book form is a dream for many photographers. As the publishing and printing landscapes evolve, new creative tools offer the opportunity to make an art object, in book form, utilizing your photographs.
PSPF is proud to present its first two-day artist’s book workshop led by a seasoned designer and publisher, and including other creatives.
Day one: An introduction to the artist book, and the many forms it can take, looking at a variety of both hand-crafted and highly-produced examples, as well as a review of participants’ projects for book consideration. Discussions about concept, physicality, sequencing, materials, quantities, and production of your artist’s book will take place.
Day two: You will apply knowledge toward your own project with hands-on sequencing, scale consideration, and walk out the door with a mock-up for ongoing development.
Who is this class for?
