Head, Book ArtBoxes and portfolios are sturdy and attractive containers for unbound images, books or objects. While learning the containers construction, this class will focus on traditional and innovative uses of paper, cloth, board and adhesives. You will make our own paste papers and book cloth to allow personalization of your box or portfolio, help introduce the item being housed or expand the content-carrying possibilities of the boxes and portfolios.

These small cards will become the foundation on which to experiment with a variety of mediums including acrylic paint and beeswax, to create rich and layered surfaces. Special emphasis will be placed on learning techniques such as sanding and stenciling, which will enable you to edition your hand-painted pieces to exchange with your classmates. You will also construct a paper case for your project.

But each element must also contribute to the book's function and durability. Explore dozens of ways to create hinges, board attachments, pockets, pleats, closures and more that are structurally sound and adaptable to a wide range of both traditional and unconventional materials. You will examine Roberta's large collection of books and book-inspired objects that use unusual construction. With this inspiration and instruction you will make a small journal that incorporates your favorite devices with the goal of transforming your ideas into a beautiful, functional journal.

Japanese woodblock prints are characterized by the luminous brilliance achieved when water-based ink is printed on Washi (handmade Japanese paper). Multiple block registration and bokashi (color gradation) will be taught. Unlike Western relief printmaking, no press is used; water is the only solvent and minimal workspace is required. This is one form of printmaking you can safely and easily enjoy at home. Prerequisite: Some familiarity with printmaking helpful, but not required.
