Event Details

In this workshop, you will make a front and back hard cover, fold a concertina page, and discover how to join all the pieces together so you can walk away with your very own hand-bound, blank-page concertina book to write, draw, or collage in.

You will be supplied with all required materials for the concertina book.

You will need to bring a steel ruler, a cutting knife/blade, a pencil, and a bone folder (if you have one).

Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison create artists’ books and paper works which use an armoury of play, humour, and perhaps the poetic too, to lure you closer.

Their work can be found in the collections of the state libraries of NSW, Queensland, Victoria; the university libraries of Charles Sturt, Melbourne, Monash, RMIT; Artspace Mackay; Burnie Regional Gallery; Latrobe Regional Gallery; National Gallery of Australia; Print Council of Australia; Tate (UK); and University of West England (UK)
