DECONSTRUCTING the NARRATIVE:
Working with Text & Image
Instructor Mary Larsen

 

Saturday January 14, 2017
1 to 5 PM
JCBA Bindery 350C in the Wimberly Library

Tuition Schedule: $75 general public / $65 FAU faculty & staff and students from other institutions / $50 FAU students

Utilizing the instructor's work as well as the work of William Cordova and other artists as a starting point for a dialog about the fragmented uses of narrative as a way to re-tell history, participants will explore the use of text and image in innovative ways. The workshop begins with a brief presentation of the artist's use of fragmented narrative and mixed media to tell a story. Participants will work in a wide range of materials, including book pages, maps, different types of paper, magazines, and various found materials. You'll discuss found poetry and be shown techniques in manipulating text on the printed page and other mixed media techniques, including photo transfers. Expect to paint, draw, sew, tear, burn, make marks and rub them out, cutting and pasting to find your voice in creating your own unique narratives.

Students will get to taste the joys and challenges of working in a collaborative workshop setting and will reap the spoils of their endeavor. Each participant will leave with a copy of the collaborative book created over the course of this workshop. The poets will attend Sessions 1 and 3; the visual artists will attend Sessions 2 and 3. Or participate as both poet and visual artist for a slightly higher tuition rate.

Poets: Part One
Saturday January 21, 10 AM to 3 PM in JCBA's Print Shop, FAU Library
Please come prepared with a poem of 150 words or less. If you would like to bring more than one poem, we can curate these selections as a group to determine which one fits best with the rest of the poems. We may even be surprised to find an unexpected overarching theme. Once the selections are made and finalized each poet will get their hands dirty setting their poems in lead type from the collection here at the Jaffe Center. We will lock up each poem in one of the Vandercook presses then print the pages in preparation for the next step of the collaboration. Students will learn how to set, lock up, troubleshoot, and print lead type on a cylinder proof press.

Visual Artists: Part Two
Sunday January 22, 10 AM to 3 PM in JCBA's Print Shop, FAU Library
Please come prepared to collaborate. Each visual artist will select one poem from part one to respond to visually then carve their image out of linoleum. Each linocut will be printed onto the adjacent page of the corresponding poem using the Vandercook presses. Students will learn how to carve, prepare, troubleshoot, and print linoleum via letterpress.

Poets and Visual Artists: Part Three
Sunday January 29, Noon to 3 PM in JCBA's Bindery, FAU Library
Part three is collating and binding day! All of our collaborators will come back to learn how to prepare and bind the pages that have been created. We will trim, fold, punch and sew our pages into a single signature pamphlet. The participants will meet their mysterious collaborators, sign each other’s books, and make lasting connections that could blossom into future collaborations.

POP-UPS for MINIATURE BOOKS
Instructor Shawn Sheehy

 

Saturday & Sunday March 25 & 26, 2017
10 AM to 5 PM each day
JCBA Bindery, FAU Library

Tuition Schedule:
$185 general public
$165 FAU faculty and staff and students from other institutions
$145 FAU students

Impossibly large images bring excitement to the pop-up book. Strategies for creating these expansive structures are useful in miniature books, as they allow the artist to increase the drama and expand the content. Using cardstock and a small set of simple hand tools, students will build and bind a number of structures that move above, beyond, and behind the page. Beginners are welcome; experienced participants will explore pop-ups in a whole new way.

Instructor:
Shawn Sheehy’s interest in paper engineering grew from his background in sculpture, graphic design and book arts. Sheehy editions pop-up artists' books and creates mass-market pop-up books ("Welcome to the Neighborwood" is his most recent). His work is collected by the Jaffe Collection and many other book arts collections. He teaches paper engineering workshops all over the U.S. and this is his second time teaching at JCBA. <www.shawnsheehy.com>
