BOXES INSIDE AND OUT - Martha Little
June 4 - 7   ($260 + $26 studio fee)

In this four-day workshop we explore how the box form can be as expressive
and complex as a book. A box provides opportunities to display
3-dimensional objects, tell stories and use irony and surprise as  it
unfolds to reveal what is contained. Students will learn basic folding box
construction techniques, including fitting, spacing, and attachment
methods. In the first days of the class several different structural
elements are introduced- such as clamshell lids, wrapping and accordion
walls, multi-layers of enclosure, and false openings - which can be used or
combined to achieve an artistic or functional goal. During the last two
days students will be given an assignment which will allow them to combine
and build on the basic elements they have learned and to produce a box of
their own design.


DIMENSIONAL BOOKS: LESSONS IN MOVABLE MAGIC  -  Bonnie Stahlecker
June 11-15 ($325 + $18 studio fee)

This workshop focuses on making books whose structure can transform its
visual content from 2-D to 3-D. Utilizing a combination of pop-up and
dimensional bookmaking techniques, participants create mechanical models
and self-directed projects which explore these unique 3-dimensional
possibilities. A session on paper decoration, rubber stamping and other
image-generating techniques will supplement this workshop.


MAKING BOOK ART TOOLS BY HAND - Jim Croft
July 5 - 8 ($230 + $28 studio fee)

In this four-day workshop, participants will shape bone folders, grind and
sharpen knife blades, create piercing awls and spin linen to make sewing
thread. A variety of materials will be provided including elk and deer
bone, bamboo and lignum vitae, kniife blanks and homegrown fiber.
Discussion about technique, materials, useful shapes and the importance of
hand work will supplement the productive hands-on sessions.
