      Computer Design Bootcamp

      with Dana Bowers

      Saturday & Sunday, October 11th & 12th

      11:00 � 5:00 p.m.


      Want to know how best to translate your designs into letterpress
      friendly files? This two-day workshop will help you take your design
      ideas and prepare them for photo-polymer processing. Don�t have a
      design idea, but want to learn what works? Dana will have a class
      project for you to hone your skills. We will work with Adobe
      Illustrator and Photoshop to learn what works best in letterpress and
      what to avoid. This is a hands-on class, so it�s best to have
      Illustrator and Photoshop, and even better to have them on a laptop
      you can bring to class.

      Millimeter Binding

      with Juliayn Coleman

      Saturday & Sunday, October 25th & 26th

      10:00 a.m. � 5:00 p.m.


      During the early part of the 1900s, northern Europeans needed to
      conserve bookbinding materials, and so was born the millimeter
      binding. Allowing only a single millimeter of leather to show on the
      boards at the spine and corners, these bindings made the most of what
      northern European bookbinders of the early 1900�s did have in spades:
      leather paring skills. In this class, we will begin to explore what a
      well-meaning bookbinder can do with these skills. If you have ever
      been curious about working with leather, this is an excellent way to
      get started. And just for fun, we�ll make our own paste papers to
      decorate the larger portion of the covers. Previous experience with
      sewing books will be helpful for this class.

      Quarter Leather Photo Album
      with Lesa Dowd

      Sunday, November 9th

      10:00 a.m. � 4:00 p.m.


      Participants will create this deluxe photo album using leather on the
      spine to coordinate with beautiful paper covers. Discussion will
      cover appropriate papers for use as pages, considerations for cover
      papers and leather, and archivally sound techniques to put photos into
      the album. Traditional bookbinding techniques will be used from
      folding and sewing the pages to covering the album. Some bookbinding
      experience helpful.

      Paste Paper

      with Juliayn Coleman

      Sunday, November 16th

      12:00 � 3:00 p.m.


      One of the earliest methods of decorating papers was to add pigment to
      leftover glue, slather it on paper, and use whatever was handy to add
      shapes, lines and details. This method has endured through the ages
      because it�s soooo much fun. Come make your own using both
      traditional and modern techniques.

      Date Book with Cloth Inlays

      with Juliayn Coleman

      Sunday, December 7th

      12:00 � 4:00 p.m.


      Here is a bookbinding project so attractive, so uniquely expressive,
      it will stun you for its usefulness. It combines something you need
      (a 2009 date book) with an opportunity to construct shockingly
      beautiful patterns in colored bookcloth on the covers. You will
      become comfortable with common bookbinding adhesives, tools, and
      materials in this class. Make a book you will be thrilled to judge by
      its cover, and relieved to have for its content. Open to all skill

      Make a Stationery Box

      with Juliayn Coleman

      Saturday, December 13th

      12:00 � 4:00 p.m.

      very own box. It makes an ideal container to keep your own stationery
      organized, or the perfect gift for that special someone.
