Stephanie Stigliano

From Two to Three Dimensions: Making Artists Books from Gelli-Prints


Start Date






End Date


Meeting Day




This online course features the following types of interaction:

  • Live meetings
  • Live critiques

In this course, students will make monotypes from textural items and individually cut stencils, and transform them into artist books. The prints can be assembled to form a moveable patchwork in a Flag book. The Pop-Up Accordion book can house a variety of collapsible paper forms; we will design and construct asymmetrical boxes and a pivot base. As time allows, we can experiment with additional processes. Each class will begin with an overview of techniques and relevant artwork. An unexpected benefit of the online format is the ability to view demonstrations in extreme close-ups and repeat short video clips as often as necessary. We will enjoy the camaraderie of a traditional studio experience as we explore new processes. Students will upload digital images of their in-progress and finished work to Padlet for general discussion. All the materials are non-toxic, environmentally friendly, and can be used safely at home. You will not need to pack up and carry your supplies. You won’t get stuck in traffic, or have to look for parking—save time and work in the comfort of your own home! This course is for beginners and experienced artists.
