with Sarah Nicholls

What makes an artist's book a unique reading experience? How can the form of a book reinforce its content? How can you develop a structure that creates and supports a particular kind of reading experience? What are some accessible, easy-to-edition structures that will surprise and delight your audience?

“Fold and Content” is a one-day workshop exploring ways to match content with simple structures that add conceptual complexity and impact. Participants will explore how accordions, fold outs, map folds, and more can create a heightened reading experience. By the end of the workshop, students will have created a variety of blank book models, and the knowledge to begin working at home on their own.

This is an in-person workshop located at Small Editions’ studio in Brooklyn, NY, with a maximum of 7 participants. No prior bookbinding or printing experience is required, and we think this class would be a great fit for graphic designers, writers, and artists seeking to find creative ways to portray content within studio-space and budgetary constraints.

The cost of this workshop is $250. Tuition includes course materials that will be used to create take-home models.

Small Editions is offering a limited number of scholarship seats in this course for folks who face systemic barriers to accessing creative education and resources. More information and application form can be found HERE.

Applicants must fill out and submit the following form by July 1st by 11:59 EST in order to be considered for financial assistance. Applicants will be notified by July 8th, 2024 regarding whether or not the application has been approved.

If you cancel the class before July 6th, your full tuition will be refunded. If you cancel after July 6th or drop out of a class in progress, the full tuition paid will no longer be refundable.
