Event Details

June 27 – July 1, 2022

This workshop will work on four book structures and discuss possible variations, demonstrating the versatility of the book as a container of text or as a sculptural object. Participants will be encouraged to develop a theme and create their own individual projects. The book structures are versatile and all lend themselves to a wide variety of sizes and interpretations for journals, artists’ books, drawing books, sculptures etc with soft or hard covers.

Book structures will include folded structures, sculptural concertinas, a coptic bound journal (feral or plain), a compound, hinged page binding (butterfly book), and a book sewn on tapes.

Adele Outteridge lives in Brisbane where she runs The Studio West End, she works in artists’  books, printmaking, sculpture, drawing and fibrearts. She has exhibited widely and her work is held in private and public collections nationally and internationally. Her work has also appeared in many publications, both national and international including Keith Smith’s Non-Adhesive Binding series.

Adele travels widely lecturing and teaching workshops, and has been artist in residence in schools and galleries throughout Australia, and overseas.
