SAGA – Inderøy - Norway

A hand made book has an incredible and powerful potential as both portfolio and artist book. With learning bookbinding, you will be able to create books, portfolios, and portfolio boxes tailor-made to fit with your work.

This workshop is designed for photographers and other image-makers wanting to create artist books of their work, as well as for anyone looking to learn a new craft. Bindings taught in the class will include Coptic, Accordion, Japanese stab, as well as clamshell boxes.

Participants will in addition to the different techniques learn about different papers, threads, and tools needed for the different binding processes.

You need no prior knowledge of bookbinding, as this is intended to be a beginner’s level workshop. You will be provided with a large variety of different types of paper for binding, decorative paper, cardboard, linen cover, as well as all the bookbinding equipment you would need. You will leave this workshop mastering 4–6 different binding techniques and several finished books created by you with high quality paper from Norwegian Designs.

Travis is an emerging artist who studied at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, and the Art Institute of Boston. He works with many diverse media including alternative process photography, video, paper sculptures and bookmaking. Hocutt's work has been exhibited internationally, including SAGA Gallery's summer exhibit in 2013 and more recently at the Jimei x Arles international photography festival.
