Monoline and the Accordion Book with Yolande Lessard

22 February 2020 • 9:00 am23 February 2020 • 4:30 pm

WEEKEND WORKSHOP – February 22 and 23 2020

Welcome to this workshop where words, images, calligraphy, and creativity come together to create a unique book.

This two-day workshop allows participants to learn about monoline writing and how to make a book, in which the calligraphic text merges with the visual, while learning composition and accordion binding.

We will begin the workshop with the learning of monoline writing, the use of the rounded nib, and spacing, followed by exercises and the study of variations. We will explore different tools to create calligraphic marks and create a visual inspired by a text. These elements will then be incorporated into the interior of the book and for the calligraphed pages. Finally, participants will familiarize themselves with the basics of bookbinding, notably the making of a hard cover and the assembly of an accordion book.

Monoline nibs as well as paper and cardstock for the creationg of the final accordion book are included in the registration price.

Level: All are welcome.
