Project Description:

In this studio intensive, students make books and paper by hand in the context of global history and culture, taught by artist and award-winning author Aimee Lee (OC '99). Using East Asian and European techniques, students process plant materials to make paper, decorate it, and bind it into books. They organize an exhibit of their work at the Terrell Library for the campus community. Field trips include Morgan Conservatory and Zygote Press in Cleveland and Special Collections at the Terrell and Art libraries. This project is an excellent introduction to book and paper art and their connections to history, culture and material studies, science, and technology.

This project fulfills the Practice requirement for the Book Studies Concentration.  Special consideration will be provided for students who have declared this concentration.

Number of Students: 8

Project fee: $220

Dates: January 6th to January 28th, 2020

Special considerations:
Access to the paper studio in Hales requires walking down a half flight of stairs. Students must be able to occasionally lift heavy loads, stand for up to 2.5 hours at a time, and be willing to do tasks like cutting paper precisely and sewing, which require fine motor skills. They must also be willing to work in close physical proximity to each other because the studio is small.
