Exploring artist books within Conversations with the Collection
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.
The National Galleries of Scotland offers a variety of opportunities for members of the public to access our resources and view artworks that are not on display in our gallery spaces. These include two libraries, print rooms, an archive and special book store. Visits can be arranged via appointment.
Friends of the Galleries get free unlimited entry to all exhibitions, and enjoy a wide range of exclusive benefits including early exhibition access, special events and 10% discount in our cafes.
