2 New Book Events! First, Courtney's Cerruti's Playing With Image Transfers

POSTED BY: GISELLE GYALZEN

We are so happy to be hosting 2 San Francisco-based women for their book parties in November.

First up, is Courtney Cerruti and her book, Playing With Image Transfers, published by Quarry Books. Her book party is on November 9, from 2-6PM. 

 

  

Playing with Image Transfers opens the world of image transfers to the novice and seasoned artist alike. Learn four core image transfer methods: Packing Tape, Solvent, Medium, and Acrylic transfers, then expand your skills with 20 projects across a range of interests and applications. Once you’ve mastered the techniques, you’ll also explore multiple surfaces as a base for transferring – wood, fabric, paper, canvas, and book forms. A beautiful gallery will show the use of image transfers in a wide variety of high-end artistic works to get your creative juices flowing.
 
The “Considerations” in each chapter offer suggestions on how a single project can be expanded or further adapted if you’re looking to challenge yourself past the basics. By the time you finish this informative book, you’ll be well-equipped to use your own images in your creative work.

Maker extraordinaire, Courtney sees books as objects to be read and re-purposed, candy wrappers as paper flower petals, toilet paper tubes as a menagerie of animals. She sees the potential in the discarded, history in the mundane and art in the everyday. She saves everything, makes anything and teaches from a place of passion and authenticity. Courtney believes everyone is creative and she’d rather spend an evening drinking tea and painting than doing anything else (except maybe scavenging treasures abroad).

Courtney is the author of Playing With Image Transfers, published by Quarry Books. 
Courtney teaches at the San Francisco Center for the BookPress: Works on Paper as well as other guest locations in the SF Bay Area and online at Creativebug.com. She studied painting at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France where she had her first exhibition and hosted many book making parties! She makes something everyday and can be found on instagram as @ccerruti
