Talks and workshops on ‘Fore Edge Painting a Book’ by Martin Frost, coincide with two new titles on Fore Edge by Jeff Weber and Jeanne Bennett.
A series of whole day workshops teaching the technique of water-colour painting
onto bookedges, structured to appeal to painters, bookartists and bookworkers of all
levels and anyone with an interest in the unusual. Having completed the course, the
student will be well-primed in the practice of edge-painting and will take home an
example of their own painting, hidden under the gilded-edge of their own book.
Separate illustrated lectures describes the genesis and progress of this little-known
art form, supported by a display of painted books from the artist’s own collection.
