Kamloops This Week

The Kamloops Art Gallery is hosting a workshop on mini-book printing and binding.

Coinciding with Monumental Ideas in Miniature Books, an exhibition of books made by artists, the workshop will provide an introduction to creating handmade books.

It will be led by Kamloops-based artist Darlene Kalynka, who will discuss forms including “instant” and “accordion.”

Kalynka is an associate professor at Thompson Rivers University who teaches printmaking.

With a bachelor in fine arts from the University of Alberta and a master’s degree from Montreal’s Concordia University, Kalynka has exhibited her books and other print-based works in exhibitions nationally and internationally.

She has participated in a number of artist residences, including stints at the Banff Centre, Toronto’s Open Studio, GAU in the Netherlands and Kloster Bentlage in Germany.

The workshop will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Kamloops Art Gallery, 465 Victoria St..

All ages are welcome, all materials are provided and there is no fee.
