    About this Class:
    In two 2-hour sessions (Saturday and Sunday), workshop participants will learn traditional techniques of Italian Longstitch bookbinding through online, video conferencing instructional demos. This bookbinding process can be used to create simple, elegant book structures with multiple signatures, creating finished products with a satisfying heft. The exposed sewing along the spine is a particularly elegant feature of this process, allowing for these functional books to also exist beautifully on the shelf. No prior experience necessary, and most* materials will be provided. Participants will leave the workshop two books of their own creation, and a set of templates for making additional books on their own.

    Instructor: Brian Hitselberger

    Brian Hitselberger (b. 1982) is an artist living and working in Athens, Georgia.

    His installations, paintings, and works on paper explore a variety of themes that shift between subjects and perspectives alternately intimate and immense – occasionally within the same piece. Recent subjects include sleeping and dreaming, hate speech, drag queens as spiritual healers, and queer magic. Although working across a variety of media, Brian is a committed studio artist, and positions technique and material at the center of his studio practice. His work has been exhibited throughout the Southeast and the Mid-Atlantic. He has held residencies at the Elsewhere Artists Collaborative, the HUB-BUB Arts Initiative, and the Hambidge Center for the Arts. He has received funding for his work from the Georgia Council for the Arts, the Willson Center for the Humanities, and the Andy Warhol Foundation. He received a BFA in Printmaking from Tulane University in 2005, and an MFA in Painting from the University of Georgia in 2010. He is currently an Associate Professor of Painting and Printmaking in the Art Department of Piedmont College and represented by {Poem88} in Atlanta.
