‘BOOK FORMS’ with Jo Owen
Bookmaking has been a passion of Jo’s for many years, and over time these have evolved into Book Forms. The work is of mixed media, paper and fabrics, paints and dyes, with quite extensive hand stitching plus machine stitching.
She often uses traditional bookbinders stitching methods and the form opens out to display and closes up to store and transport. The resemblance to a book ends here as the forms twist and pop out into a multitude of shapes.
The talk includes a very short history of book binding and a power point presentation.
