Inspired by Lozano’s drawings, notebooks and instruction works, this project with artist Catherine Hiley will introduce a range of bookmaking techniques, looking at how form, content, production and structure inform each other. Participants will make books that explore the small, intimate and direct nature of this medium. The books will be displayed in the gallery at the end of the workshop.
