You will spend two days collecting, cutting and constructing books that have pockets, windows and spaces for collections we bring from home or pick up from the woods and beaches around Mendocino. Pockets can be created through origami folding or added. We’ll construct a book with windows and slots for flat items. Make that perfect journal, album, recipe collection with pockets and sections for papers, drawings, and mementos. We’ll make a memory of a day at the coast in a scroll with sections for natural items you’ve collected or drawings or photos. Students will be introduced to various pasting, cutting, folding, construction and covering techniques.


MARY-ELLEN CAMPBELL’s work incorporates items from the environment in which she finds herself while traveling to all parts of the world. In addition to 34 years of University Art teaching, she has taught art, books arts and graphic design and had 12 residencies nationally and internationally including a Fulbright to teach in Thailand.

Her book art and mixed media works have been featured in 17 solo exhibitions and over 85 group and invitational shows.
