with Jamie Thome
Wednesdays, Mar 2 - April 27 (no class April 13)

In Bookbinding I, we will start with one piece of paper to create a book. From there, we will move to several kinds of multiple signature blank books, which we will case in hard covers. Real books! Made by hand! In addition, we’ll talk about adhesives, bookcloth, papers, folding, sewing, endsheets, endbands, gutters and all kinds of good stuff that bookbinders know.
with Melissa Jay Craig
Saturday, Mar 5
10AM - 4PM
$90.00 (plus $20.00 materials fee)
This one-day, information-packed workshop is intended for both beginning papermakers and for people who have experience in papermaking, who do not now have ready access to formal papermaking facilities.
Melissa Jay Craig has been making paper on residencies and in other situations not specially equipped for papermaking for the past eleven years. She will share her expertise on everything from storing and re-hydrating pulp, to sheet-forming without a vat or press, to building (and adapting) your own low-cost equipment for setting up a home studio, and we’ll make a few sheets, too. (Maximum 8 students)

with Jamie Thome
Saturday, March 19

If you love boxes, assemblage, and the artist Joseph Cornell, this one-day workshop is for you. Join us to create small one of a kind assemblages in found containers, which we will then fill with resin to make them permanent and archival. You can combine Fun With Collage and Fun With Resin to create your own little Found Objects class series. Don’t miss it!
