​Join Cat Sivertsen for her Artist in Residence workshop: learn how to create an artists book. No experience necessary, just an open heart to play with materials and methods to create your own artists book.

An artists book is a book created by an artist and not a biography about an artist. It is experimental in the media and methods, it could tell a story – or maybe not. It is always beautiful, unique and relevant to the maker and, of course, the viewer.
The workshop will begin at the hardest part and that is, getting started and, as such Cat is delighted to share some of her ‘tricks of the trade’. These are based in simple drawing, printmaking, collage and writing processes to help you get your pencil, pen, brush and materials onto paper. You will then combine those into a take away as an artists book. The best part is you take home these tricks and exercises as part of your creative making practice.

Join Cat for an enjoyable morning of playing with materials and methods to create an artists book. No experience necessary, all materials are included and pre-registration is required as there are limited seats. You DO need to bring a packed lunch and an open heart for play.
