Subject:      [BKARTS] bookbinding workshop

> Greetings,
> My July offereing of this workshop filled in less than a week, so I am
> pleased to announce a second week-long "Drum Leaf" workshop I have arranged
> for this September. The Drum Leaf 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, September 8 - Friday, September 12, 2003
> 9:00 am - 4:00 pm each day
> Arrive Sunday, September 7 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
> Idaho).
> 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 about $162 total for all 5 nights (Sunday -
> Thursday) and breakfasts if you share the Sunset room that has 2 twin beds,
> up to $775 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 $375 - 425. (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 May 8, 2003. We will hold a space with a phone call
> or email about your intent to send a deposit, but a reservation can't be
> guaranteed until we receive the deposit.
> 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 that you can download with all the details.
> Please forward this information to anyone you know who might be interested.
> I look forward to seeing you "On the Palouse" this September!
