This is an intensive hands-on course where students will be introduced to the traditions and methods of the handmade book, as well as the expressive possibilities available with book works. Students will learn to combine text and image, and use diverse structural techniques in the creation of original book works. Exploration with materials is encouraged and students will be able to combine other media (photography, screen printing, painting, etc.) they are familiar with in their class projects.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. A complete list will be provided with the syllabus on the first day of class.
