Event description
Book Binding Workshop with Louis Lim

About this event

A resurgence of the bookbinding craft has seen many visual artists and photographers exploring captivating ideas through the use of a book medium. In this full day workshop, Louis Lim will first bring you through a discussion on various possibilities in artist book making and consider the complexity of design and looking at books as a sculptural object that allows layers of meaning to unfold through the viewing process.

This will then be followed by a hands-on session learning several book-binding techniques, such as pamphlet binding, concertina binding and Swiss Binding with kettle stitching. The skills gained from this workshop will help you navigate through your future book making endeavours.
