Embark on your own creative journey through a new series of four book-making workshops, devised by artist Becky Adams. You’ll experiment with pop up pages, unusual folds and miniature paper theatres. Rubber stamping, printing, stitching, collage and storytelling combine to make utterly personal and unique works of art. You’ll be introduced to a new book each week.
Participants are welcome to regard the sessions as a ‘book clinic’, where you can work on an ongoing project with a helping hand from Becky.
Suitable for beginners.
MONDAYS, 14th January – 4th February.
10am – 1pm
£85 for 4 week course, includes materials.
Becky Adams is an applied artist based in Penarth and has been practising art professionally for the last fifteen years. She studied Fine Art and English Literature in Liverpool before a period of travel around the Middle East. She later undertook her MA in Book Arts at Camberwell College of Art (2001).
Past residencies include Ruthin Craft Centre, King’s Lynn Museum, Queenswood School and Chitraniketan, Kerala (Southern India). Becky’s work is centred on textile and book art which provides a tangible and tactile link to past experience and her love of storytelling. An eclectic use of materials such as antique fabric, driftwood, paper, ephemera and line drawings combine to inform her art works.
Her work appears in several private and public collections, including the Wexford Artists Book Collection (Ireland), the Victoria and Albert and Tate Gallery (London).
Becky is currently a recipient artist of a Creative Wales Award 2011/12 from the Arts Council of Wales.
