Create Books from Fabric and Paper: 2 Day Workshop


Create Books from Fabric and Paper using Mixed Media Techniques with Cathie Griffith

Saturday 24 August: 10am-4pm
Sunday 25 August: 10am-4pm

Approx. $40 materials fee pay directly to tutor – NOTE this is an approximate fee, the exact fee TBC

Suitable for All Skill Levels, ages 16+

Not all books are made from paper! Using a variety of mixed media techniques such as printing, stamping, folding and stitching by machine or hand, we will be making books from fabric and paper.

  • On Day One we will be experimenting with mixed media techniques to decorate fabric and papers.
  • On Day Two we will be constructing our various book formats using the fabrics and papers we have decorated on Day One.

You will leave this two-day course with at least 5 completed fabric books and as many paper books as time allows. The techniques we play with will allow you to explore your creativity and produce some beautiful artists books.

All the materials and stabilisers will be provided in a kit (approx $40) so you will just need to bring along a basic sewing kit. A kit price, a list of the tutor provided materials and your requirement list will be provided closer to the course time.

About Cathie

As a fibre and mixed media artist my works currently explore the idea of memory and past experiences and prompt viewers to investigate their own life stories.

I often work with found and recycled objects and liken myself to a bowerbird always looking around me, searching and discovering new items to include in my art works. I enjoy working in both two and three dimensions, combining these found treasures with other materials such as wool fibre, fabrics, paper, threads, paint and inks. My works include artists books, sculptures, collages and painted and stitched wall pieces.

I integrate patterns, lines and textures found in nature and the built environment into my work to enhance my stories. Incorporating drawing, painting, printing, collage and stitching, my art works come together in an organic way, experimenting with materials and techniques until my story becomes clear.
