Artist’s Bookbinding Class With Raquel Amat Parra

Learn layout and design the analogue way in this delightful bookmaking taster workshop at BPW especially for Belfast Design Week 2019.  

During this 3h course, participants will design and create their own small hard-cover book, suitable for use as a sketchbook, portfolio or journal.  

Experienced tutor, Raquel Amat Parra will teach the process of folding, cutting and gluing paper with traditional equipment to create a Concertina style artists book. These can be customised with a variety of patterned paper, cords, ribbons, printed materials and embossing shapes so each one is as unique as it’s creator! All tools, equipment and materials are provided.

A Type of Power - Screenprint Demos and Artist Talk by Pauline Clancy

As part of the 'Big Design Day Out' across Belfast, graphic designer and printmaker Pauline Clancy will demonstrate her approach to screenprinting and give participants the opportunity to screenprint powerful, typographic compositions on paper and tote-bags to take away for themselves.

This hands-on session from 11am - 1pm is FREE, but places are limited and must be pre-booked via Belfast Design Week. 

At 2pm all are welcome to join Pauline for an informal talk on her work and practice which explores the relationship between language, typography and materiality. A range of examples of work will be displayed in the studio. All welcome but please RSVP to [email protected] to give us an indication of numbers.
