An exhibition of Artists' Books

Saturday 8th March - Thursday 17th April 2014

Gather and Bind is a display of Artists' Books created during a series of bookmaking workshops at the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery in collaboration with Aspire, a Leeds Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) Service.

The group worked with book artists, Rebecca Jones and Alex Pritchard to create both folded and stitched books in a variety of formats including the spectacular flower fold book and Alex's signature slot book.

These books will be on display alongside a selection of artist books from the University's Special Collections in the Gallery's Education Room.

A special family friendly workshop to accompany the exhibition will be held at the Gallery on Saturday 8th March from 2-4pm when Claire Evans will be teaching you how to make your own artists' books.
