Sunday, July 20, 2003 to Saturday, July 26, 2003
Join papermaker Lynn Sures and Curator Teri Williams for a week of Fabriano
papermaking and a rare "insider" Italian adventure.
The town of Fabriano, Italy, home of the historic Fabriano paper known
worldwide, is the destination of a unique one-week hands-on workshop led by
papermaker Lynn Sures.  Begin each day on site in the antique papermill
learning from Fabriano master papermakers, and working with their
watermarked molds and deckles.  Spend afternoons on excursions arranged by
the Fabriano museum, to local places of interest--from picturesque medieval
towns to natural wonders in the province of Ancona.  The charming, restored
11th century Ostello di San Biagio in Caprile will provide our
accomodations.
For information on the Fabriano museum, read Sures's article "Living Museums
of Papermaking in Italy, Part 2" in the Winter, 2002 issue of the journal
Hand Papermaking, and visit the Fabriano website www.museodellacarta.com.
Lynn Sures's website is www.lynnsures.com.
The cost is $1,200 per participant, which includes all workshops, tours,
and accommodations, as well as some meals.  Airfare is not included.
Limited to 10 participants.
