Overlaption: Visual Narrative In The Book Format

July 22, 2018 – July 28, 2018

Macy Chadwick

With an emphasis on creative play, this workshop provides instruction in building a visual narrative, printing in multiple colors, and designing book pages. Students will carve several linoleum block shapes and print them in overlapping layers on the etching press, harnessing chance and discovery. Then, each artist will bind their printed pages into a Leporello accordion book with a hard cover. Course content is enhanced by discussions of how to develop ideas and sequence information. Demonstrations include carving linoleum blocks, registration of multiple colors, mixing ink and book binding techniques. Open to all skill levels.


Macy Chadwick publishes artist’s books and limited-edition prints under the imprint In Cahoots Press, in Oakland, California. She received an MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and currently teaches at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco Art Institute, and San Francisco Center for the Book. Chadwick’s work is in prominent collections in the U.S. and abroad.
