Books, Textiles and
Bookmaking Fusion

Books, Textiles and Bookmaking Fusion

Discover the fusion of artist books, textiles, and boxmaking in this unique workshop with Rhiannon Alpers! Explore the art of creating an untraditional book structure that combines the interactive elements of books with the tactile beauty of textiles and fabrics of all sorts.

Over two engaging days, both book artists and weavers will have the opportunity to integrate their existing pieces into a new, cohesive structure. Participants will create a sculptural accordion book complete with pockets and openings, housed in a custom-made lidded box. Using templates, pre-cut pieces, and their own fabric and textile materials, students will bring their individual themes and color palettes to life, resulting in a stunning array of unified boxes.

This course welcomes participants of all levels, from weavers and textile artists to book artists and makers. Basic sewing and gluing skills are required, including knowledge of folding, sewing, gluing, measuring, and cutting.
