      We have a new website, and some new class offerings in Evanston.
      Check us out at www.evanstonprintandpaper.com

      We've also got photos of upcoming workshops and from workshops past.

      These are our April/May offerings:

      Intro to Artists� Books

      with Jen Thomas

      Tuesdays, April 7th � May 12th

      7:00 p.m. � 10:00 p.m.


      In this class students will be introduced to several basic book
      structures and image transfer techniques that they can build upon to
      create their own artists� books. Students will be encouraged to view
      the book as a conceptual space and create an artists� book every week
      to fully explore the medium. Leave any preconceived notions at the
      door. No previous bookbinding experience is necessary.

      Limit 8 students

      Altered Books & Found Art

      with Jen Thomas

      Sunday, April 19th

      10:00 a.m. � 4:00 p.m.

      $72.00 (+$20.00 materials fee)

      Have a book or two on your shelf you know you�ll know you�ll never
      read again? Someone give you a biography of Warren G. Harding even
      your library won�t take in donation? Well, it can have a new life, a
      new meaning, a new purpose if you bring it to Altered Books Class.
      Jen will guide you through techniques that will make your book a stage
      for your art. You will sew, glue, paint, cut and draw your books to a
      whole new incarnation, as well as explore found objects that can be
      repurposed into new artist book creations.

      Limit 8 students

      10:00 � 5:00

      $150 (+$25.00 materials fee)

      Let�s go back, shall we? Back to a time when everything was made
      better and things worked the way they should. A time when books were
      sewn through the fold, and peace and harmony reigned through
      Alexander�s empire. In this class, we shall go back to that time, not
      just to satisfy our nostalgic impulses, but to learn some pretty cool
      methods for making books that have heartily laughed in the face of
      time. They are still ideal structures for photo albums, portfolios,
      journals, family memoirs, and chapbooks. Open to all skill levels.

      Limit 10 students

      Intro to Digital Letterpress

      with Stacey Stern

      Thursdays, May 21st � July 23rd

      7:00 � 10:00 p.m.

      $385.00 (+$25.00)

      In this ten-week class for beginners, you will learn how to make your
      very own polymer plates, and print your designs from them. Stacey
      will take you from your computer image, to film, to plate, to the
      press. You will learn how to operate the equipment, mix inks,
      register plates, and print. In the early sessions, Stacey will
      discuss the traditions of printing, and guide you to the modern
      adaptations that are possible with photopolymer plates. There will be
      time to work on either your own or a group project.

      Limit 6 participants
