BOOK BINDING WORKSHOP WITH REGIN IGLORIA
Open Source Gallery (306 17th St)
Sunday, October 17, 2-6pm
This is a FREE bookbinding workshop for your entire family by Chicago based artist Regin Igloria. Drop-in are welcome, but please RSVP!
Who doesn’t love a blank book — it holds so much potential. For diagrams or a diary, for poems and sketches, recipes and todo lists, mementos and manifestos!
Imagine a blank book that is handmade, from all sorts of paper and bound in interesting ways with twigs, cord or snaps? Even better.
Regin Igloria, who has a solo exhibition at Open Source Gallery called "Heavy Lift," is hosting the book binding workshop within his exhibition. The workshop is part of Gowanus Open Studios. Regin knows that making books is a hands-on way to help connect a community or family. Books are small, intimate and tactile. Regin encourages people to use the things that are already in their house when making these books because it helps to reduce trash and also makes them more unique and personal. So please bring anything you like to integrate.
