Work on your own online learning.

Online format.... Private password protected blog.

Artist books explorations 'work on your own' online learning is a complete class which is no longer 'live' but which is available to you to work your way through at your liesure.
Signing up to this programme as a work on your own package allows you access to the complete course which comprises 34 videos and numerous text and image posts.

Access is permanent. There is no time limit.

Join me whilst I sample 'artist book' forms, building samples and stitched pages which I hope to present in an unusual and unique manner.

***please note. I have only basic book making skills. I extend these skills by 'testing' various forms of page binding using paper and perhaps cloth too. I am happy for you to be experimental and adventurous with your own books. I encourage the pushing of boundaries, the exploration of idea and thought.***

My role will be to demonstrate the creation of collaged and textured sheets of paper, cloth and embroidery, to illustrate the creation of stitched scraps for pages and to then share how a page can be adorned in order to enhance the presentation of your sampling before investigating and testing ideas for finished book forms. This in turn will lead to the creation of unique ''artist books'', a library of ideas and inspiration and a valuable resource for the future in terms of design and the extension of embroidery sampling.

In addition to a private class blog where all video and images will be hosted you will have access to a private Flickr group where you can upload images, view images from other group members and participate in discussion re the course, suppliers, relevant exhibitions, artists etc. You will also be free to begin your own discussion topics.

Images of my own ''Artist Books'' can be seen here. From viewing these images you will gain an appreciation of what can be achieved during this programme and beyond.
