Event description
Introduction to the artist’s Book and the ‘One Sheet’ Book by visual artist and printmaker Sioban Piercy. Saturday One-day Course.

About this Event

Just Art It is delighted to have visual artist and printmaker Sioban Piercy offering an introductory one day course in Art Books and Creative Bookbinding at Just Art It studio!

This master class is designed as an introduction to the artist’s Book and the ‘One Sheet’ Book. In this class you will be introduced to the possibility of a ‘book’ as an artwork. You will then be guided in how to use various folding, binding and cutting techniques to transform your print, drawing or other work on paper into a three-dimensional objet. By end of class you will have produced at least one book.

You are asked to bring a selection of drawings, prints or other works on A2 (or larger) sheets of paper that you would like to make into a book, but you must be prepared to cut, fold and generally ‘rework’ them. For best results, the paper should be as flat as possible. If it is buckled or curled, flatten it overnight under a board with some heavy weights. The rest of the materials that you will need in this course are all supplied.

Date: Saturday 16th September

Times: 10 am to 5pm ( One hour lunch break)

Price: €140 (inc. 23% VAT) All materials included. Maximum of 8 students.
