Mixed Media Madness/Bookmaking 5-day Summer Camp

  • Davis Studio 916 Shelburne Road South Burlington, VT, 05403 United States (map)

Are you a "jack of all trades" when it comes to art? If you like to paint, draw, collage, print, sew, and build, then join our bookmakers’ laboratory! First, we’ll explore and experiment with a variety of fun art techniques on paper. We'll also play with printing techniques to create your own amazing textures and beautiful one-of-a kind prints. Then, we’ll assemble our painted papers and prints into books. You'll learn saddle binding, Japanese stab binding, concertina and perfect binding, tunnel books and more. Take home several unique, expressive, and functional books that are artworks on their own, and can be used for journaling, writing stories, scrap-booking, or whatever you can dream up! If time permits, you can start filling a book with poems, original stories and illustrations, or your own art. This exciting week will be a variety-lover's dream, and a book lover’s paradise.
