Exploring artist books within Conversations with the Collection

Modern (Modern One) Art Space 1
  • Saturday 11 March 2023, 1–3pm

Booking essential


Join us for an exploration of the artist book, informed by the objects in the Archive & Library collection.  

Archive intern Rowan Berry will introduce the collection and works on show – and we will consider how the books have been used to document, explore, and experiment as part of the creative process. Book artist and printmaker Susie Wilson will then lead a relaxed creative workshop session where you can try out some of the construction and expressive techniques used in the books on show.  

No experience is necessary. We will be using scissors, sewing needles and glue. All materials are provided.
