This workshop was conceived as part of the Assembly 2020 Youth Takeover public programme and is delivered by artists Zahra’a Nasralla. Limited capacity, first-come first-serve basis. Kindly RSVP to the workshop and successful registrations will receive details and instructions for joining the session.
We have grown to perceive mundane household objects, such as oven mits, cutting boards, and cork, to serve distinct purposes. Throughout quarantine, Zahra’a began to explore the possibilities of book-binding by breaking the boundaries of said purposes and redefining them through her new series “Can I Book-bind That?”. By recycling and reusing old materials and objects, she has reassigned value to what was once rendered of singular-purpose or otherwise useless. In this workshop, learn more about Zahra’a’s process and follow along with her as she creates a unique book step-by-step using found materials.
Zahra’a Nasralla is an Iraqi designer, book-binder, and self-identified maker. After graduating from the American University of Sharjah in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Architecture, Zahra’a began to develop her passion of creating beautiful and functional books. Her signature piece, the Foundations A5, was inspired by her Foundations year at AUS. Zahra’a is currently working on her new series called “Can I Book-bind That?” where she explores the possibilities of materiality as pertains to everyday sheet materials.
