Book Excavation Workshop with James Allen

Book Excavation Workshop with James Allen

Are you as big of fan of James Allen's book excavations as I am? Here's your chance for a workshop with him coming soon to the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, Washington.

From the museum web site: "Make your own Book Excavation with Cut Up/Cut Out artist James Allen. In this two-day workshop, Allen will demonstrate reductive techniques and processes he uses and guide students through their own book excavation. Ages 14+. Some experience using cutting tools recommended, but not required."

September 16-17, 2017, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

In case you missed it, Oregon Art Beat, a weekly arts program on Oregon Public Broadcasting, has a fascinating segment about James Allen and his book excavations. Great video showing the process behind his art, in an in-depth, accessible manner. Watch it here.
