Välkommen till en öppen föreläsning med Tracey Rowledge!

Tid: Tisdag 9 augusti kl. 19.00
Plats: Wallénhallen, Leksands folkhögskola

I samband med att Tracey Rowledge leder en Masterclass, Gold tooling on a leather-covered book, bjuder vi in till en öppen föreläsning i Wallénhallen.

In and around Bookbinding

Tracey will talk about how her making and thinking has evolved over the years, how drawing underpins her practice, how collaborating with makers from other disciplines enables her to maintain an outsiders perspective to her craft and how she balances her multi-disciplinary practice.


Tracey Rowledge studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths’ College, London, and Fine Bookbinding at Guildford College, Surrey. Her practice combines elements of both fine and applied art. She exhibits internationally and her work is held in many private and public collections.  Tracey has received various awards, including a Project Grant from Arts Council England in 2019 for ROOM, a collaborative work with David Clarke for Collect Open, London. In 2016-17 Tracey was artist in residence with David Clarke at Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery, UK, which culminated in the exhibition Shelved; this work went on to be re-presented for an exhibition at Gallery S O, London. Tracey also received support from the Crafts Council to go on the 2008 Cape Farewell Expedition to Disko Bay, Greenland.

Her past work includes a series of drawings made with Sarah Warsop, What Isn’t Here Hasn’t Happened, commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance 2011; and for Jerwood Encounters she made a site specific, solid graphite wall drawing (Jerwood Space, London 2012).

Tracey teaches gold tooling and bookbinding; she is a partner in Benchmark Bindery, established in 2009 with Kathy Abbott, where conservation underpins their bookbinding work. She is also a founding member of Tomorrow’s Past, an international bookbinding collective whose aim is to encourage an alternative and modern conservation response to antiquarian books.
