Windows into Spring: The Art of Fenestration for Book and Paper Artists
A Workshop by Jocelyn Curry
Saturday, March 19th 2016
10 a.m. to 1 p.m
Room 020, Collins Library
University of Puget Sound
Glimpses of what is to come on the next page of a small book or inside a card happen through small, cut-out windows. Called fenestrations, these can bring elements of surprise and dimension to your work. To practice this, we will make a pamphlet-style booklet on the theme of spring flowers using Arches hot press paper, map collage, rubber stamps, and our own handwriting.
