Artist Workshop | Bookmaking with Ke Francis

Friday, August 18, 2017

9 AM - noon

BancorpSouth Classroom

Immerse yourself in the magic of the book with a half-day workshop led by narrative artist Ke Francis, co-owner with his wife Mary of Hoopsnake Press, a fine art press based in Tupelo, Mississippi. Francis’ unique process brings all components of book-making under the purview of the artist, creating a cohesive sensory experience that elevates the traditional book to another plane of meaning. Workshop participants will create their own hand-bound sketchbooks, journals, or storybooks, guided by the artist. The finished product – which participants will keep as their own – is a twenty-page book made from Arches text wove paper, complete with printed wood type title, sewn signatures, and custom binding.

No prior experience is necessary to participate. Materials and tools are included in this accessible registration fee of $15, made possible by the artist’s generous donation of time and expertise. Class size is very limited.
