WORKSHOP / KATE BINGAMAN BURT & ZACH SCHOMBURG
Objects / Belongings: Writing and Drawing About Our STUFF
The Workshop—In this workshop participants will be asked to bring in their own personal objects that are meaningful (or not so meaningful). Workshop leaders, Kate and Zach will encourage participants to think about their everyday objects in new and different ways. What stories can we share of ourselves through our objects? What stories do our objects tell of us?
Participants will explore a variety of illustration techniques and writing/editing methods to produce drawings and short narratives about our relationships with each object, and take away a collaborative publication of the days work.
Along with thinking and making things about our stuff, we will also learn about small press publications, different illustration methods and writing techniques.
Kate Bingaman-Burt is an illustrator and educator. Her work orbits around the objects in our lives: the things we buy, the things we discard, and the collectivity and social interaction that can arise from cycles of consumption. Via illustrations, daily documentation, publications, events, large-scale participatory projects, client work, and a full-time role as educator, Kate’s work invites a dialogue about contemporary forms of exchange. She is an Associate Professor in Graphic Design at Portland State University and sits on the boards of Design Week Portland, Independent Publishing Resource Center and Octopus Books. Some recent clients include IDEO, Uniqlo, Chipotle and Oprah Magazine.
Zachary Schomburg is a writer and teacher. His primary focus is to keep the contemporary poetry conversation vibrant and active in his community by leading writing workshops--both independently and through Oregon Literary Arts—and also as the publisher of a small local poetry press, Octopus Books, and curator of a poetry reading series, Bad Blood. He teaches poetry workshops at Portland State University. Zachary is the author of a forthcoming novel, Mammother (Featherproof 2017), and four books of poetry including, Fjords, which won the 2013 Oregon Book Award. He lives in Portland.

WORKSHOP / CHRISTINE HERRIN
From Hand to Digital /Storytelling & Book Making sponsored by Adobe
The Workshop—In this collaborative workshop, participants will incorporate original handmade elements using analog brushes, markers, and paint. Additionally they’ll learn a few tricks of the trade by using Adobe tools and apps, as well as the Apple Pen to bring their work into a new digital life. Prompted by a theme, each person will create and contribute one page to a collaborative book. Christine will teach a simple pamphlet stitch to combine the book and everyone will have copy to take home.
Graphic designer and hand letterer Christine Herrin, of San Francisco, California, is obsessed with stories, paper, and print. Travel and her passion for documenting her experiences have always been a central theme in her work as a designer, especially in the line of products she’s been creating for the past few years. Christine is currently working on a design-rich travel journal meant to inspire people to document their lives in creative, meaningful ways, while her Instagram challenges entice others to use images, words, and illustration to chronicle life’s most interesting moments.
