Sketchbooks make up one of the more important aspects of studio practice. They give us an intermediate home for our ideas between brain and finished piece. As a Social Clubber, you are often instructed to "first, come up with an image." Armed with a sketchbook, this step becomes much easier, as you've got a cache of images and ideas at the ready.
This Monday in the Clubhouse we're going to upcycle old hardback books. When you're finished your old book will house a brand new sketchbook or journal.We'll learn how to create simple signatures and how to sew them together.
We'll be using a wide variety of papers to fill your books. Feel free to bring your own if you have a favorite type. We will have a cover for each of you, or you can spend some time in the thrift store and bring your own (it must be a hard cover book).
