[BKARTS] Chemise and Matchbox Workshop In Iowa City

Please excuse cross postings.

The Chemise and Matchbox-  A One Day workshop by Pam Barrios

Date:  August 7, 2004 9:30-4 Kolarik Book Studio; 216 North Hall, Univ. of Iowa Campus, Iowa City, Iowa

Cost: $70 for Guild members; $85 for non-members. Cost includes all supplies
Deadline for registration is July 30, 2004.   

Enrollment limited to 12.

Co-Sponsored by the Midwest Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers (http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byorg/gbw/chapters/midwest/) & The University of Iowa, Center for the Book (http://www.uiowa.edu/~ctrbook/).  
> This version of the slipcase removes the danger of damage on removal of the
> book. The chemise and book can easily be removed by pushing on the spine at
> either end. It is a tight construction which requires no additional clasps
> or ties and provides pressure for vellum books.
> Construction is surprisingly simple. All components are cut at the same
> time. In this workshop participants will construct a model chemise and
> matchbox, then construct a box for a book they will bring from home. For
> this workshop, books should not be larger than 9 inches tall and 7 inches
> wide, but the construction holds up with books even larger. Decorative
> elements will be discussed, as well as variations to the construction, and
> its conservation and artistic adaptations.
> Pamela Barrios was introduced to conservation at the New York Botanical
> Gardens in 1976. She subsequently was hired by the New York Public Library
> and trained by Elaine Schlefer in the methods used by Carolyn Horton
> Associates. She was on the conservation staff at Yale University and the NY
> Academy of Medicine and in 1990 moved to Utah as Special Collections
> Conservator at Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library. Former
> chair of the Guild of Book Workers Standards of Excellence Seminar, co-chair
> of the GBW Rocky Mountain Chapter for its first 6 years, and Instructor of
> Bookbinding at the Marriott Library Book Arts program from 1996-2001, she is
> an avid supporter of the book arts. Her artist books and design bindings
> have been exhibited internationally.
