I will have two pieces in FORMATION, The Guild of Book Workers 2018-2019 traveling juried exhibition with a theme invoking a wide array of interpretations.
Simply defined by Merriam Webster as “an act of giving form or shape to something,” 'formation' can insinuate process, history, creation, change, beginnings, an arrangement, botany and landscape, personal narratives and impersonal storytelling. As artists, designers and craftspeople with our own histories that form us, we also play a vital role in the formation of objects and experiences; pulp molded into paper, paper folded into books, books shelved into a library.
What is the final product, if not for the methods used to create it? What makes us into the artists we are? What pushes us to continue to create?

Debra brings back her popular bookmaking classes in a special three-part series. In June, work on Flag Books - a kinetic book whose parts move in separate flags as you page through. July brings Tunnel Books, which draw the reader into a three-dimensional story, and August finishes with Fireworks Books: a bibliotechnical bang which contains a popup structure of repeated forms that unfold from all sides. Bring your work back to the Camera for second Saturday craft lounges and continue your experiments in bookmaking.Find out more »
