Hidden Stories: Book Art (2-day)

Art Classes

19-20 Aug, 10am-4pm

Book Place

Open to all adults – no experience required.

Create an artists’ book using ephemera and visual clues to illustrate your short story. Bring a short story idea with you, whether it’s a journey along a walk, meander through a dream, or crime story, whatever you like.

We’ll take that story and use visual prompts, to accompany, explain, embellish and add clues to your story. We can include hidden secrets, pop up surprises, layers of intrigue, letters of mystery, building pages with hand made ephemera that take your reader in a circuitous route to the end whether that’s the end of a walk, the crime solves, or perhaps you’ll leave your reader aimlessly wandering around on a moor not sure what to do next!

We’ll be using drawing, collage, layers of transparent papers, patterns, rubber stamps, letters, postcards, napkins, maps and/or pop ups, along with some written words, (whatever works best with your piece and you’d like to use) to create your interactive book. You can include teasers, wrong turnings in your plot or just go underground to find new worlds in your small book with packed pages.

This is a journey to discover your own imagination. Whether you start with a murder mystery plot or a walk around the park, we’ll embroider the stories into exciting hand made artists’ books. You’ll be writing text by hand so your story needs to be short enough to be able to do that.

Materials (provided to the students)
A deconstructed A5 (or B6) booklet will be supplied for you to work with. There will also be a range of papers and offcuts to use to create your ephemera.
I will have some envelopes, old used stamps, rubber stamps with me, please feel free to bring any photocopies, drawings, ephemera with you to add to your story.
Coloured and drawing pencils, felt tip pens and 0.5 drawing pens available to use along with glue and scissors.

Materials (required by the students)
Please bring any of your own materials you would like to use along with collage papers and ephemera that you would like to use, e.g. tickets, stamps, letters, envelopes…
