Book Arts Program at the J. Willard Marriott Library
University of Utah

The Art of Papermaking
Session I: For Educators,
June 11th - 15th, 9:00 to 5:00
Session II: For Students and Community,
June 18th - 22nd, 9:00 to 5:00

The book arts begin with papermaking, and the Book Arts Program has
invited Jana Pullman to teach the 2001 summer intensive. Formerly of the
Iowa Center for the Book, Pullman served as apprentice to papermaker Tim
Barrett for four years.
These sessions will combine historical information with practical
experience, bringing together discussions on the history of papermaking,
demonstrations, and hands-on training.
The sessions will cover both Oriental and Western traditions of
papermaking as well as decorating techniques such as pulp painting,
marbling, and Suminagashi. Participants will gain an understanding and
appreciation of the evolution of paper through the centuries while
making traditional and contemporary papers.

Inservice credit or relicensure points will be available for Session I
from the Utah State Board of Education. The Book Arts Program gratefully
acknowledges the R. Harold Burton Foundation and the Salt Lake County
Zoo, Arts, and Parks Program, which have made it possible to offer
underwriting to educators for Session I of the intensive. Call now to
reserve your space!
