This workshop will cover traditional bookbinding and book structures but on a tiny scale. Students will learn multiple book-binding techniques, utilize one color printing (screenprinting, digital, and/or xerox) in addition to hand drawn content to create an original miniature artist book. Our artist books will be created in edition and traded amongst workshop participants. Using much of the same materials and techniques, we will also explore building small furniture and book reading fixtures for our tiny libraries.

Imin Yeh is an interdisciplinary and project-based artist working in sculpture, installation, and participatory events. Her projects use Print Media as a technical tool for realizing the ambition of large-scale work and Print as a conceptual strategy for exploring free, exchange, and craft based economies. The projects utilize repetitive handcraft and mimicry as a strategy for examining the issues around the unseen labor and production that lies behind our many unconsidered everyday objects. Recent exhibitions include the San Jose Museum of Art, Asian Art Museum (San Francisco), and at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco). Yeh is the recipient of a Eureka Fellowship from the Fleishhacker Foundation and an Individual Artist Grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission. Yeh has an MFA from California College for the Arts. Imin Yeh is an Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
