THE WORKSHOP

If you think of a samples-book
as some kind of dusty album
full of boring scraps of paper
or uninteresting fabrics,
this workshop will be
a starting point to change
your mind.

You might be surprised
of the variety of bookbinding
structures that can be made
to contain small collections
of items you already posses
or samples of your own pattern
and graphic research.

You can also pick up ideas for
your professional presentations.

A five-day workshop
to work at containers
and their content.

The work will involve graphic
and color research related
to the display of the different
items and the making
of suitable containers
for each collection.

Ideas in progress for a new
understanding of samples-books.

MATERIALS AND TOOLS

All the materials to make
the structures (samples books)
will be provided and are included
in the course fee.

Before the course starts
you will receive a list
of suggested materials
to gather as "samples"
to fill your models.
