Call for Book Art Workshops: Liverpool Book Art is excited to announce a celebration of Book Art at Kirkby Gallery, Knowsley throughout the week of 30th October 2023, including workshops throughout the week, and a one-day Artists Book Fair on Friday 3rd November. Applications to run workshops (& offer demonstrations, talks etc.) are invited from individual book artists, artist collectives & groups.


Liverpool Book Art is inviting proposals to run in-person workshops on any &/or every day in the week beginning 30th October. We are excited that these workshops will form part of a week-long celebration of artists books.

The exhibition 'CRAFTED' opens at Kirkby Gallery on 30th October. It is a selling exhibition of works by a range of creatives, including several Book Artists. Participating artists have already been selected. Liverpool Book Art and Kirkby Gallery are celebrating and promoting Book Art throughout the opening week  of the exhibition.

Kirkby Gallery and Liverpool Book Art intend that all the week beginning 30th October will be a celebration of Book Art. A major focus will be daily book art workshops throughout the week. This is school half-term, so we will be offering workshops for both children and adults. We are also interested in offers of talks and demonstrations.

The first floor of the Kirkby Centre contains both the Gallery and the popular Kirkby Library. We are seeking 'handling copies' of book art to be available throughout the week for people to discover and explore, under the supervision of Kirkby Gallery staff. Please let us know if you are willing to provide copies.

There will also be a one-day Artists Book Fair on Friday 3rd November. 

This Call is for the Workshops only. If you wish to apply for a table at the Fair, please apply via the separate Curator Space call. 

Venue Address: The Kirkby Centre, Norwich Way, KIrkby, Knowsley L32 8XY
