Artists' Books: Deconstructing the Book @ Leith School of Art, 10th July - 14th July 2023 10am -4pm £400
This week-long Summer School will look at deconstructing the book form and using its elements to create new structures and ideas in the spirit of the twentieth century art movements of Dada and Fluxus. Over the course of the week, we will make several book structures / objects and a ‘fluxus’ box to contain them. Students will be introduced to and gain practical experience of book-making, print, text and collage. Humour and playfulness will be a central theme, with an emphasis on book structures that ‘pop-up’ and surprise, and printmaking that can continue to be developed at home, cheaply, without a press.

Mapping the Landscape: "You Are Here" @ Bridge House Art, Ullapool, 31st July - 4th August 2023 £480This week-long course will focus on how to develop content for an artist book through 'mapping' the landscape near to Bridge House Art. The natural beauty of the hills, beaches and sea, the life forms within it and the varying weather, along with observations of the human impact on this landscape, will all be explored and documented as research material. Students will then be encouraged to develop work using drawing, printmaking, text and mixed media and will be introduced to different ways to combine these with structure.

Using the plants and natural forms from the surrounding area as inspiration, students will be introduced to different techniques of printmaking and mixed media to create a garden of their own within a book. Various methods of mark-making and printmaking will be explored, for example Mono-printing and Cyanotype in order to develop botanical pages that can be bound into a unique book work or series of books. Throughout the week different sewn and folded book structures will be demonstrated and everyone will learn how to make a wraparound container for a set of Japanese stab bound books.
