Collaborative publishing workshop

During this collective gathering participants are invited to produce a book together. This will be guided by the visual artists Nishiko (Billytown Bookshop) and Patricia Pinheiro de Sousa (misprint-it), who have been running self-publishing initiatives and working on different book projects, some of which they will be presenting during the workshop.

This is an opportunity to learn, discuss and get inspired on collaborative publishing, as well as, contribute with own ideas and/or experiences. Participants are invited to bring along a contribution to this book that relates to a specific theme (to be announced later on). This can be an image, a photograph or any other printed material. All these contributions will be the departure point to think of a concept and structure the content of the book. In the end, each participant will receive a copy of a small edition of this co-edited self-published book.

Having previous experience on the field is not a requirement though. The idea is to gather different ideas and contributions from the most various minds! If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Location: Stroom Den Haag

Date: Sunday, 24 September 2017, 13:00-16:00

Entrance: free (up to small donations for printing costs)

Exhibition ‘Do It With Us’ presents a programme with three artist-initiatives that share their creative processes in a group or a collective. Aloardi, Filmwerkplaats and misprint-it are examples of platforms that exchange knowledge and ideas by creating alternative learning situations or environments. Through their practices, they contribute to a vital cultural field of artistic experiments and actions such as film, publications, sounds, and workshops.”

Artists’ Books Workshop new! Fall/Winter 2015 programme
Artists' Books Workshop @ ZINE Camp, WORM
This workshop is meant for those who want to learn how to make their own hand bound books departing from various types of materials. For those who wish to further experiment, this workshop offers the possibility to make a book departing from a concept or idea. Often these ideas are triggered during the workshop, where participants are guided in a tour through a wide scope of paper and thread.
Perfect for all who wish to exercise their creativity!
Each workshop will be in itself a way to enter the wide world of bookmaking and self-publishing. Participants will be invited to either make an artist book or a blank handbound book, departing and combining the different materials available. Each session will be focused on a specific book format and/or a binding technique. Participants will be guided individually during the workshop, being advised on a technical as well as on a conceptual level.
All the materials and tools are provided. A light lunch will also be available.
