Please visit our Ledbury BooksArts exhibition at the Shell House Gallery in the Homend, Ledbury HR81BT ..open every day, 10a.m.-5p.m. during the Ledbury Poetry Festival. 5th -14th July. www.shellhousegallery.co.uk
An exhibition of artist’s books as objects, ideas, time-travel, mind mapping, revolutions; unique and poetic.
I attended a BookArts workshop at the Shellhouse gallery in Ledbury with Guy Begbie, who supported the group to make unique concertina books incorporating many different techniques. I decided to prepare paper with inks in advance to use for my book with the idea of drawing into the colours and shapes. I plan to record memories of walks with friends in the local countryside
“The book is perhaps the most intimate, easily accessible and portable of all the art forms.
The book as a visual medium can provide links and meeting points between art disciplines.
Guy Begbie demonstrates this, in his practice as a multi-disciplinary artist. ” www.guybegbie.com
I attended another workshop with stained glass artist, Nicolas Hopwood at Brillie, a stunning location near Hay on Wye. The panel that I made is to be incorporated into my front door, alongside the crow window made at a previous workshop.
