The Pamphlet: for Artists, Writers, and Others

Date: Sunday, March 14
Time: 1:00-4:00pm
Cost: $30 for workshop and materials

Observatory will host a pamphlet workshop led by artist James Walsh on Sunday, March 14 from 1 to 4 PM.

The pamphlet is a simple and elegant way to bind together a group of loose pages into a book. We’ll use regular 8 ½ x 11″ paper folded in half and sewn through the fold, with a stiff paper cover. The form can be adapted to just about any use, and is excellent for a poetry chapbook, a short story or essay, or a blank journal.

We’ll go over the basic materials of paper and thread, talk about some technical issues like paper grain and imposition, and look at various types of pamphlets. Everyone will make at least one pamphlet. No prior experience is necessary. All materials will be provided. If you have special papers you would like to use, particularly for the cover, feel free to bring them.
