    Event description

    Community Binding lead by artist Regin Igloria at Glass Curtain Gallery


    COMMUNITY BINDING is a shared endeavor that brings people together in a comfortable, welcoming setting where craft and social interaction are combined. Participants gain experience and knowledge in hand bookbinding techniques during a 1-2 hour workshop. Using non-adhesive stitching methods, techniques are introduced in three basic steps, folding signatures, making covers, and stitching the parts together. 

    Both traditional and non-traditional modes of production will be shared, and participants will come away with 3-4 handbound books, from zines to pamphlet variations. All materials and tools are provided.  

    Regin Igloria was Born 1974 in Manila, Philippines and currently lives and works in and around Chicago. He is a multidisciplinary artist and educator. His drawings, artists’ books, sculptures, and performances portray the human condition as it relates to the natural environment and inhabited spaces. He founded North Branch Projects, an organization that builds connections through book arts. He works with various communities to create crossover between disparate populations and cultures, aiming to broaden the roles of both artists and non-artists. Igloria has taught at places such as Marwen, RISD, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Snow City Arts, and Carthage College. He received a 3Arts Individual Artist Award as well as local, national, and international grants, support through artist residencies, and has exhibited internationally. He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design.
