[BKARTS] Form & Fancy- The Cross-Pollination of Imagination and Structure. A Workshop at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico

Form & Fancy-  The Cross-Pollination of Imagination and Structure
A Workshop at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico
With Laurie Doctor & Laura Wait
February 15-22, 2003

Join us on 21,000 acres of high desert under millions of stars. A week of
stories, painting, and poetry, culminating in the production of a
sophisticated painted book, bound with a leather spine and wood covers.

Laurie Doctor will guide you through the morning, creating content for
artistic expression. Writing, painting, poetry, and stories will develop
the pattern for igniting imagination.  Painting many sheets of paper will
begin the investigation and development of a completed wood cover book and
a small Book of Days.

Laura Wait will introduce pastepaper painting and decoration as a beginning
for painted pages. Chine colle will be used as a method for collage and
freeform layering of images. The binding or our books will be non-adhesive
structure sewn onto thick parchment and leather straps with a concertina.
The spine will be in leather segments, which allows for creative use of
color and exposed sewing. Covers will be painted wood, designed to flow
visually into the endpapers and the image and text pages. Sewing, leather
paring and good bookbinding technique will be will be emphasized in order
to make an elegant and well-made book.

Our goal will be to pursue artistic expression as well as studying the fine
craft of bookbinding. We will make one finished book, and a lot of other
"drafts" and sketches along the way. In addition, we will stay warm inside,
and able to take marvelous walks in the rocks and saffron buttes of Ghost
Ranch during the beautiful winter.

Workshop fee $550.
Materials $75.
Room and board $500.
