[BKARTS] Tim Ely Bookbinding Workshop - Uniontown, Washington

I am pleased to announce a week-long workshop I am offering this summer
featuring what I call the Drum Leaf Structure. It is a book structure I have
developed to accommodate my own work that neatly solves many of the problems
encountered when creating a codex book from a single-sided, narrative series
of prints, photographs, digital images or drawings. If you've ever struggled
with the challenges of creating an original bookwork that requires folded
sections and imagery on both sides of the sheet in a predetermined order, you
will appreciate this structure. Any book binder who has been challenged with
finding a way to bind loose materials into a book form will also find this
structure appealing.

Participants will go home with two finished models. The workshop will also
include a variety of paper decorating and imaging techniques, structure
variations and cloth mounting for spines.

All levels are welcome, though experience in any craft that requires
precision will be useful.

Monday, July 14 - Friday, July 18, 2003
9:00 am - 4:00 pm each day

Arrive Sunday, July 13 for a buffet supper and show and tell.

The Churchyard Inn Bed and Breakfast in Uniontown, Washington

We will be taking over The Churchyard Inn, a beautifully restored bed and
breakfast in the heart of the Northwest's wheat country, in Uniontown,
Washington. Uniontown is located about 90 miles south of Spokane, Washington
and 16 miles north of Lewiston, Idaho (and 15 miles from both Pullman,
Washington -- Washington State University and Moscow Idaho -- University of

Participants will stay at the Inn and have 24-hour-a-day (if you want!) work
space in the large social hall where classes will be held every day. Lodging
includes a full breakfast each morning and Kathy Stilwell, the proprietor and
fabulous cook, will prepare our lunches on 3 of the days, as well as 3
wonderful dinners during the 5-day session.

Uniontown is a tiny, old Western farm town, but for lunches and nights out on
the other days, there is Eleanor's, known around the region for its good
food, including great burgers. The town has also recently restored one of its
historical buildings to house the Sage Baking Company, a most excellent
artisan bakery and coffee house.

We will be limited to 10 participants. The Inn has 7 guest rooms with a total
of 11 beds, so some room sharing may be required if we have full enrollment.
There is another small bed and breakfast in Uniontown and hotels in Lewiston,
Pullman and Moscow if we need them, but we hope everyone can and will stay at
the Inn.

Lodging at the Inn ranges from $150 total for all 5 nights (Sunday -
Thursday) and breakfasts if you share the Sunset room that has 2 twin beds,
up to $700 total if you stay by yourself in the 1200 square foot Palouse
Suite that has a king bed in a separate room, 2 queen sofa beds, dining area
and kitchen. The average 5-night cost is about $350. (These numbers do not
include sales tax.) Details will be sent upon request.

Additional meals at the inn are a total of $125, including 3 lunches (Monday,
Wednesday, Friday) 3 evening meals (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday) and snacks and
drinks for the week, and includes gratuity and sales tax.

The workshop fee is $500 and includes all materials other than your personal
tools and favorite art-making materials.

Transportation is additional. Spokane is served by most major airlines.
Lewiston and Pullman/Moscow also have regional airports with more limited
service. We are checking into airport shuttle services, but rental cars are
readily available.

To hold a space for you, we will need your reservation with a $50
nonrefundable deposit by March 14, 2003.

If you would like more information, please call me at 509.397.3573 between 9
and 5 Pacific time, or email me at axt1221@xxxxxxx and I will email you an
Acrobat PDF document with all the details as soon as it is ready.

Please forward this information to anyone you know who might be interested.

I look forward to seeing you "On the Palouse" this summer!
