Boxmaking Made Hard
A Workshop with Jody Williams
University of Iowa Center for the Book
Iowa City, IA

February 23rd & 24th
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Taking boxmaking beyond the basics, we will construct a box structure 
based on a design developed by the instructor built with pre-cut book 
board and decorative papers. The box will contain drawers, a door/lid, 
a window and compartments, and can be used to house small objects. The 
techniques employed can be applied to other, larger boxes and styles. 
Precision measurement and board cutting will be covered. Samples and 
discussion will focus on options for text, images and objects for the 
Students should have some previous bookbinding or boxmaking experience.

Jody Williams received an MFA in printmaking from Rochester Institute 
of Technology and a B.A. in studio arts from Carleton College. She 
produces work under the name Flying Paper Press and teaches at the 
Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Minnesota Center for Book 
Arts. Her artists' books, prints and paper works have been featured in 
over 200 exhibitions in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Williams has been 
an artist-in-residence at ArtPark, Women's Studio Workshop, the Frans 
Masereel Print Center in Kasterlee, Belgium, and at Carleton College's 
Gould Library. She was a recipient of a Minnesota Center for Book 
Arts/Jerome Foundation Fellowship in 1996, and was honored as the 
distinguished Artist in Fiber by the Minnesota Crafts Council in 1999.
