The Round Robin Books Workshop will be instructed by Scott McCarney.

In sport, a round robin is a tournament in which each contestant is matched in turn against every other contestant. For this workshop, artists will be the contestants matched, in turn, with circulating sheets of paper and given the opportunity to make their mark.

A variety of mark-making techniques are welcomed and encouraged (drawing, collage, frottage, tracing, transfers, stamping, etc.).

As the papers circulate, we will fold them into sections to define the pages and create our own itineraries through the book. The second half of the day will be spent learning a variety of binding options for finishing our books.

Each participant will have a hand in the creation of the edition and end the day with a personalized, one-of-a-kind copy.
