This workshop offers an in depth exploration of the art of fabric book making through hands on practice with bookbinding techniques. Together, we will broaden our understanding of the meaning of the fabric book and how its construction transforms the reader's experience. We will approach the history of textile books along with María's self-developed techniques. We will compare ancient traditions and contemporary adaptations of book making, opening up our senses of exploration and play. You will leave having developed your creative voice and having found a new mode of expression and communication in fabric.
