      Greetings again,

      The annual Paper and Book Intensive (PBI) will be held from May 14-25th
      2008, at the Arrowmont School for Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN.
      This was the location for the last international marbling conference
      held in 2002. This year, a week-long marbling workshop will be taught
      in teh first session by Nancy Morains, the current proprietor of
      Colophon Book Arts Supply <http://www.colophonbookarts.com/> . To
      learn more, please visit:

      Now celebrating its twenty-fifth year, Paper & Book Intensive is a
      working sabbatical for practitioners and motivated beginners in the book
      arts, papermaking, and conservation. Daily class sessions are combined
      with lectures, discussions, and shared meals, to promote unusual levels
      of exchange and inspiration. PBI 2008 is an opportunity to visit
      well-known <http://arrowmont.org/> Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts
      <http://www.arrowmont.org/> in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee.
      The program consists of two sessions. During the first four-day session
      participants will take two classes – one meeting in the morning and
      the other in the afternoon. Between sessions there is a break day. The
      second session classes will meet all day for four days, making a total
      of three classes for the event. Specialized class supplies as well as
      appropriate equipment and working environments are provided as part of
      the program.

      Introduction to Marbling and Suminagashi

      This class will provide an introduction to the basic techniques for both
      paper marbling and the Japanese technique of suminagashi, two methods
      for applying water-based surface decoration to paper. The emphasis for
      both will be on creating traditional patterns using authentic materials
      and tools such as water-based colors, caragheenan size, alum, and
      broom-corn brushes. With this foundation, the possibilities and
      directions for marbling are infinite.

      Nancy Morains has been marbling paper and other materials for 25 years,
      and sells her artwork at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. She is the
      owner of Colophon Book Arts Supply <http://www.colophonbookarts.com/> ,
      for which she grinds the watercolor marbling pigments herself. She has
      attended PBI many times as the proprietor of the on-site PBI store.
