NOTE: This class will be held in a live, online format using the Zoom Platform
Class meets Saturday Sep 18th, 11am-5pm ET, with break from 1-2pm ET

This one day online workshop will explore the interactive qualities of Hedi Kyle’s storage book binding — what is hidden and what is revealed with each turn of the page. We will create a concertina binding that incorporates multiple transparent layers, pockets, windows and more! Zoom in on particular parts of images, bury information in layers of transparencies, and discover unexpected combinations as you look through, within and under the pages of your book. 

These techniques are great for housing photographs in an unusual way and adding unique sequence passages to books. Macy will suggest an assortment of images and materials to work with in a day of creative play.

  • pencil

  • images that you find inspiring (in color, concept, design, etc) for example: patterns, your own  prints or drawings, magazine pages, found papers, old letters, photographs, anything that you think could spark a book idea
  • images with interesting silhouettes: plant forms, clip art, 2-D shapes of any kind
  • a few samples of poetry that you like–either your own or someone else’s
  • your favorite mark-making materials (example: colored pencils, pens, needle and thread, collage)
