Learn to make an accordion book structure and create an artist's book using your own meaningful photo or object as inspiration. This 2-hour workshop will introduce the craft of making an artist’s book inspired by historic, familial, or cultural memories.


Bring a personal photograph, letter, or recipe to use as the impetus for making an accordion book structure to contain your ideas, drawings, and writings.     


* This hands-on workshop is limited to 8 participants.


This workshop will be led by artist Sauda Mitchell. Mitchell is a community leader, certified archivist, educator, and multidisciplinary artist with over 20 years of engagement with the arts, libraries, and diverse communities. Through primary source research, Sauda’s work focuses on utilizing printmaking and QR code technology as a creative non-traditional access method, linking viewers to archival repositories, curated exhibitions, and aggregated data. Each work serves as a visual response to archival collection materials representative of the many stories that can be found deep within the archival landscape. She is represented by Booklyn.


Sauda serves as the Director of the Painting Drawing and Printmaking Department at the Sawtooth School of Visual Art in Winston Salem N.C. where she develops high quality visual arts programming, curricula, workshops and events. Sauda is appointed as an adjunct instructor in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Buffalo, where she teaches students the methodology of how to teach with primary sources. Mitchell is currently a doctoral student at Drexel University in the Educational Leadership and Management Program. Her research centers around marginalized student access to archives based engagement in support of cultural competence and primary source critical analysis, as a catalyst for elevated cognitive development.
