Album making workshop…

Filed under: Announcements, Educational Opportunities — jackie @ 9:01 am

Good morning readers.

I am in the process of organizing a 2 Day Intensive Workshop on Album and Box Making for photographers interested in learning how to make their own flush mount style albums. This class will be “hands on� meaning you should come prepared to spend two full days making your own flush mount albums and matching clamshell boxes from start to finish. Class size will be limited to 10 students.

The class dates are Weds. and Thurs. Aug 1 & 2, 2007. The class will be held in Chesapeake, Va. at the newly renovated Portlock Galleries art space. Chesapeake is only a 30 drive away from the Virginia Beach resort area. If you are interested in taking the class please send me an email and I’ll put you on the list to be notified when the final details are available.

A few sites of interest this morning…

The Book and Paper Group has a selection of papers relating to book and paper arts on their site. From the site “The Book and Paper Group Annualis a non-juried anthology of papers pertaining to the conservation and preservation of works of art on paper, books and library and archival materials. It provides members with a venue for sharing technical information in a timely fashion. Many, but not all, papers in the Annual represent talks given at the BPG sessions of the AIC meeting. Many BPGA articles appear eventually (sometimes in revised form) in the Journal of the American Institute for Conservation (JAIC), a peer-reviewed journal.”

This is an interesting online portfolio showing many different syles of bindings.

The website of Denis Gouey has alot of useful informations and some tutorials. There is a nice one on museum box making.

There are some new photos posted over on the Flickr group.

If you have any announcements of interest to the book arts community please feel free to post them on the new “Events Board” over in the forum. It is searchable by the general public.

  1. Hi, Jackie!!

    I came back from Vegas few days later due a flight operators strike in Brazil, so I made a forced tour in Dallas…
    I wish I could attend your flush mount book (and box) seminar…
    Is there any chance of you release a online seminar or even tutorial on this matter?

    One more thing: When I was in Vegas, I talked to a lady who attended John’s seminar on bookbindind. She told me he uses Heat n Bond (or similar) to glue the spreads toghether, baking it in the oven at 175F. Does it make sense to you?

    Do you have any clue on how it is done?

    Now, Im back asking a lot of questions!!! I hope you dont mind!

    Thanks!

    Ricardo

  2. I would like to see a good online video seminar for box making for someone who doesn’t have a large workshop. Maybe using simple tools to create boxes.
