Re: Fw: [LABAC] Patrice Baldwin's workshops...
- Hey, many thanks for the kudos. We really had great fun that weekend.
I have my workshop schedule for the summer:
July 19/20 I'll be doing the Eccentric Contemporary Book Structures
again. I hope you'll try it out.
August 3 I'm doing a Basic Bookbinding for Beginners. We'll produce
four basic structures plus as many variations as there is time for.
You will learn cutting, glueing, folding and how to use all the tools
on the bookbinder's desk.
August 9/10 will be "Icorporating Text in Your Book" This workshop
will take you through the process from three different starting
places. Beginning with the text first, then with the title only, then
with only a structure in mind, you will design three books. We will
discuss copyrights, appropriate papers and type faces for each one. We
will also make our own designs for the covering materials. For
bookmakers with a little experience making books.
August 23 I will take you through the many variations of the "Side
Stab Structure" that have such manifold diversity. Special decorative
side sewings, hard and soft cover books for special uses, Japanese
styles and Western adaptations.
September 20 is the repeat of the ever-popular "Working With Leather
Fearlessly." We will see exactly what leather will do when poked and
prodded, sliced and skived. You'll be surprised!
October 11/12 We will do "Edition Book Production." This workshop is
for people who want to produce editions to sell (as in 'make money!').
For those with some bookmaking experience. We will produce two (very)
limited editions and learn the process of production from idea to
Hope to see some of you Central Coasters in LA this summer!
