      Hello all! We've got 2 4-day intensive workshops coming up this summer.
      One is being taught by Don Glaister, and the other by Tim Ely. Please
      see below for their descriptions.

      For more information: bookartsprogram@... or 801.585.9191

      June 4th through 7th
      Wednesday through Saturday, 9:00-5:00

      For as long as there have been books, bookmakers have applied
      distinctive, expressive designs to the covers of their creations. This
      two-part workshop explores historic decorative techniques in conjunction
      with modern possibilities: gold and blind tooling alongside applications
      of plastics, wood veneers, metals and other surface alterations. Get
      ready to sand, shape, scrape, paint, draw, emboss, deboss, and craft the
      tools required for the execution of these techniques. Design and produce
      several plaquettes for use as examples in future book projects.
      Participants work primarily on leather surfaces, so experience in gold
      tooling and leather binding is helpful but not necessary.
      Celebrated book artist Don Glaister lives and works on Vashon Island,
      Washington. Don incorporates unexpected materials, visual humor, and
      spontaneous expression in book forms structured around classical,
      European, binding traditions. His recent work includes two editions of
      artists' books, Brooklyn Bridge: A Love Song and The Pearl Necklace.
      Partial funding provided by the Utah Arts Council.

      Instructor: Don Glaister, Washington
      Place: Book Arts Program at the J. Willard Marriott Library, University
      of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT
      Workshop fee: $300; Materials fee: $55

      June 10th & 11th; June 13th&14th
      Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday, 9:00-5:00

      Get your swerve on with this inquiry into the uses and utility of the
      artist's sketchbook, a venerable tool with the dexterity to act as
      planner, journal and muse. Produce a single section structure by fusing
      principles of basic bookbinding with generation of IDEA and OBSERVATION.
      Manipulate content to enhance flow and connection, and expand the notion
      of the book as a free-form object. A second, more formal structure,
      built from the ground up, incorporates more advanced techniques and
      allows the flexibility needed for spontaneous play. Count on getting
      down with drawing by confronting that specter that often paralyzes
      Timothy Ely-aka, Mixmaster Scrap-began making books as an errant child.
      Interest in UFOs, alchemy, comic books, bones, and arcane religious
      artifacts led him from painting and design work to bookbinding. He
      received an MFA in Design from the University of Washington in 1975.
      Presently, Tim makes unique manuscript books and teaches the art of the
      book nationally. He is represented by Granary Books in New York City.
      His books are in public, private, and secret collections planet-wide.

      Instructor: Tim Ely, Washington
