Soft Books: Sewn Encaustic Monotypes on Encaustiflex | Aug 21 - 23 | Leslie Giuliani

Class Level: Intermediate - Advanced

Utilizing a variety of techniques, including transfers and paper lithography, artists will create a collection of monotypes using absorbent papers, fabrics, and Encaustiflex, a paper-like fabric, to create books. Scale, shape, narrative and a variety of construction methods are all considered in this unique approach to book creation. The books can be a literal narrative or abstract collection of sequential images. Narratives may be handwritten or stamped. 

Techniques covered include machine and hand sewing of soft books; composition and construction of soft books; encaustic monotype; paper lithography; exploring and layering surface textures. Sewing machines, hand sewing materials, and perforation tools will be available. No prior knowledge of machine sewing is necessary.
