Mixed: Inside Vintage Book Covers
Orly Avineri, Instructor
Dates: Tuesday, August 2nd – Friday, August 5th, 2022 (9am-4pm)
In MIXED, we will explore the life and nature of a different substrate, the inside of vintage book covers. These were hard covered books that were once bound a certain way, with signatures and thread, and had a cloth exterior. They had a mysterious life which we will ‘uncover’ and then inject new life into them. We’ll bring in bits and pieces of other elements that have previous stories and histories as well, and create new separate collages from which we’ll draw inspiration for our final book cover pieces. Mixed media processes will be introduced and used to create pieces only you can put together. Your own creative ways and preferences will surely culminate in one of a kind creations that will make us feel lively and content as art making always does.
