Join Jeremy Dixon, the poet and artist’s book maker, for two days of inspirational, practical work devoted to producing your own unique poetic artists’ book. We will examine artists’ books long association with poetry and how such books can reflect, amplify and/or become the themes of the poetry they contain. We will use an eclectic range of poetic and practical bookmaking techniques including concrete poetry, erasure poetry, Found poetry, collage, pamphlets, zines, stab binding and collaboration to create new and exciting work. This will be an energetic, practical two days looking at words and poetry in fun and inclusive ways, and aims to give participants the confidence and techniques to find new ways of using words and poetry in their own practice.
All materials will be provided but please bring along any poetry (either your own or by someone else) or any other items of ephemera that you have collected and may want to incorporate into a book (don't worry if you haven't got anything, there will be lots of stuff available on the course to use!).
