Sculptural Mica Book

October 18, 2019 – October 24, 2019

Daniel Essig

In this workshop students will explore creating and filling a hand-bound book. Utilizing a binding that has withstood the test of time with its elegance, flexibility and strength, you will first bind a book of wood, fine papers and ridged translucent mica sheets. You will then cut, hammer, glue, paint and sew back into the pages creating niches, alcoves and windows to house and protect its relics, images and words. Participants will work with mica, both the natural and manmade forms of this material, and become familiar with its unique characteristics. During this class students will create a series of book structures experimenting with a variety of materials and techniques. Open to all skill levels.



COURSE FEE: $600
