Alix Swan


Alix Swan - "Little bits of Printy Things"

Indigo Moon Gallery and Workshops, Montgomery
18th June 2016

I recently met Alix at a Selvedge Fair and was instantly drawn to her stand where she had the most exquisite array of artist book works and 3D illustrations on display. I have an obsessional love of all things paper, books and indeed fairy tales and was drawn in from the minute i saw her work: tiny "Rapunzel Towers" with zig zag pull outs, hand bound books with beautiful embellishments contained within, "Kie Kie" books (miniature hand bound zig zag books measuring 5cmx5cm), wallpieces made of wooden boxes showing 3D scenes of enchanting fairy tales with hidden treasures no less surrounded her, it was pure eye candy and needless to say i paid more than one visit.

Alix is holding her "Much Ado About Book Binding" workshop here at Indigo Moon on the 18th June, come along and join her for a creative day making a traditionally bound section book whereAlix will show you her techniques for building the book in the traditional way and embellishing with needle and thread.
