      Roycroft Book-Arts Weekend

      When: Friday - Sunday Oct 14 - 16, 2005
      Where: Roycroft Campus Coppershop South Grove at Main Street East
      Aurora NY

      About: The Roycroft Crafts community of Elbert Hubbard circa 1896-1915
      produced astonishing amounts of hand crafted items that have become
      highly
      collectable and highly regarded. The Roycroft Campus Corporation
      presents a
      weekend workshop series which allows participants to work as artisans
      did
      100 years ago.

      A collaborative workshop series will take participants through all
      facets of
      book production. Participants will work on components of one of three
      books
      throughout the weekend. Workshops include: Papermaking, paper
      decoration,
      hand set type, hand printing, printmaking, illumination, and various
      binding
      techniques. Each participant will take home new skills in the book arts
      as
      well as a copy of one of the three books. These will be the first
      Roycroft
      books to be made at the Campus in over 60 years! Participants will
      select
      one of 3 tracks and follow the workshops outlines toward the final book.
      Each track is limited to 12 participants

      Instructors include: Tom Bojanowski, Rachael Hetzel, Richard Kegler,
      Brian
      Maloney, Lynne McElhaney, Kyle Schelsinger, Peter Sowiski.
