Studio Workshop: Handmade books/crown binding with Arista Sandoval-Slater
New Mexico Museum of Art

In part one of this introductory workshop participants will create a simple but decorative book using the crown binding style which is created using a single sheet for the spine, front and back covers. Pages can be added in various styles and so we will utilize the accordion fold for a seamless addition of pages to create a handmade book simply out of paper.

After completing a BFA, she moved to Cambridge MA, and attend the College of Art and Design at Lesley University where she obtained a MFA in Fine Art Photography in 2013. While in grad school she pursued issues in communication, identity, love and romance thought alternative photographic processes. Since moving to Santa Fe in 2016, she teaches full time at the Institute of American Indian Art while balancing studio time. She continues to work in alternative photographic processes and approaches while tackling large issues in feminine and multi-racial representation, domestic spheres and intimate relationships.
