12 Drawing journeys: foldout artists books with Sara Bowen

Maps say as much about the person who made them as about the world they describe! Starting with simple structures for making foldout artist’s books, you will use drawing as the basis to explore experimental mark-making to create visual ‘maps’ of your inner and outer landscapes. Working with paper, you will develop mapping skills; looking at poetry, calligraphy, cartography and symbols as you define your personal geography. At the end of the course, participants will take away at least one innovative book, telling the story of a journey in its folds.
Sara Bowen works mainly on paper and slate, using printmaking techniques, engraving and bookbinding to create small editions of fine art prints, artists’ books and other work. Initially from the UK, Sara exhibits her work nationally and internationally and is the co-founder of international multi-disciplinary collective BookArtObject. Sara is passionate about education and has taught visual arts in private workshops and TAFE for the last ten years. Instagram: saracbowen
