John Bently and Andi McGarry
Liver and Lights & Sun Moon and Stars-
an Exhibition10-18th August 2012
Mill Street, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, I
Be inspired by two genuine enthusiasts…..
Andi McGarry and John Bently will hold two one day workshops during the exhibition on Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th August running from 10am until 5pm each day.
Set in a beautiful eighteenth century former flour mill in rural Ireland, participants will learn about and make all manner of visual books, both simple and complex, editioned and one of a kind. Learn about long lost printing methods and how to incorporate simple binding methods while capturing basic narratives in a book form. A selection of artist's books from the Wexford Artist's Book collection, and of course, the exhibition, will be on hand to help inspire, delight and surprise. Participants are encouraged to bring their own photos, words and brilliant ideas, whilst we provide all the other tools and materials necessary to turn them into posterity!
Each workshop costs 90 Euros per day.
Space is limited to ten per day so book now to avoid disappointment!
