      Letterpress WOW: Printing in the Wonderful World of Type

      Branch out this winter as you learn basic letterpress skills � play
      with furniture, type sticks, reglet and lock-up bars. Learn new
      meanings for deadlines and registration. April has lots of fun facts
      about the history of wood type, and can help you explore how
      letterforms can be used as images. The class will collaborate to make
      a unique group project. Each participant will have a copy to take
      away at the end of the day on Sunday.

      Class size is limited to 6 participants.

      Flag Books with Karen Hanmer

      In this two-day workshop, students will make two different styles of
      flag book. For both styles a sample will be made from kits provided by
      the instructor, plus a more finished book with students� imagery and
      hand written text will be made for one or both as time permits.

      Students will experiment with complementary and contrasting text and
      images. The class will discuss the effects of different spine and page
      dimensions, direction of motion, and which images will be most
      successful for different book styles. Students will learn a tidy, non-
      adhesive method of covering boards and use a jig to facilitate
      quicker, more precise assembly.

      Before creating books using their own text and imagery, students will
      review and discuss books from the instructor�s collection of books by
      other artists, as well as discuss the success and possibilities for
      improvement of their book models. The instructor will stress the
      importance of prototype construction and critical thinking at the
      onset of a project.


      Students should bring:

      One or more sets of three to five images that are in some way related
      or contrasting
      � If possible, these images should be printed fairly large on an
      8 1/2 x 11� page.

      � At least some of these images will be photocopied before use,
      so choose those that will still read well with some loss of detail.

      Two brief passages of text per set of images that are in some way
      related or contrast with the images

      Class size is limited to 10 participants.
