1."Pop-up" paper techniques
This workshop explores the qualities of paper and how it can be manipulated. "Pop-up" paper techniques, using scissors or scalpel are taught, and can lead to pop up books, cards, boxes or sculpture, with or without further decoration.
2. Making simple books (without a press)
This workshop examines books and paper and explores a variety of ways in which books, conventional or otherwise, can be made and bound, and decorated.
3. Alternative Books
This workshop examines the concept of a book - what it is that makes a book a book - and shows how books can be made from a variety of found objects, can take on a variety of unusual forms, and can lead to sculpture.
4. Altered Books
This workshop explores various ways of working on an existing book to turn it into a work of art, including painting, cutting and folding, and model making.
