      > Create three of the earliest bookbindings, including the
      > sutra (jingzhe zhuang), the wrapped-back (baobei zhuang),
      > and the popular thread-bound (xian zhuang), which has been
      > in continuous use in China for the last six centuries.
      > Through hands-on fast-paced work, demonstration, and
      > lecture/exhibit, students experience close to 1,200 years of
      > bookmaking in China, the cradle of book arts and printing.
      > Students also build a cloth-covered hard case to wrap their

      > When one constructs a box specifically to house a group of
      > objects, the objects are instantly trans- formed into a
      > collection. No matter how unrelated the objects seem, the
      > viewer is drawn to find connections between them and to find
      > meaning in the fact that they were placed together. This
      > phenomenon makes the box a wonderful medium for conceptual
      > expression, as well as for humor: miscellaneous objects
      > could appear as a collection of precious relics, parts of a
      > kit to be used for a unique purpose, elements related to a
      > narrative, etc. Through the construction of a lidded box
      > which encloses a lift-out divided tray (hiding another space
      > below), students will be introduced to basic box
      > construction techniques including covering, fitting, spacing
      > and attachment methods. We will also discuss the expressive
      > and narrative possibilities of boxes made to hold and
      > display a specific group of objects. With the remaining
      > time, students can use the techniques they
      > have learned to create spaces and add materials related to
      > the collections they brought to class. 
      > Prerequisite: No prior binding experience, but good hand
      > skills recommended.

      > Even the most complex and elaborate artists’ books can
      > begin with a simple assignment or activity. During this
      > 5-day workshop, we will approach content development for
      > artists’ books from various angles, but always with an eye
      > towards the physical incarnation of the book. Students will
      > have the opportunity to work with various materials and
      > media including pochoir, collage, simple relief printing,
      > and digital printing, in order to further their
      > understanding of how the book as object can influence the
      > presentation of meaning. This workshop will include some
      > writing, and imagemaking, but will also draw heavily on each
      > student’s previous book art experience. We will each
      > complete both

      > For book artists and printmakers, the page of a book

      > monoprinting.  We will explore page folds, scale,
