This two-day workshop will focus on plants and herbariums and use these as the inspiration to develop an artist book.
Students will draw from plants and herbarium samples, using different methods of drawing and printmaking to gather material to develop ideas from. The workshop will introduce students to various ways of making images, including trace monotype, pen and ink, drypoint etching, sewing and collage. There will also be an opportunity to learn several book structures. Examples of different book structures will be shown and the work of Jane Hyslop, Helen Douglas and Laurie Clark will provide reference from which students will develop their own ideas into a finished artist’s book.
