divided into three sections: 1) a section for notes and graphite
drawings; 2) watercolor sketches, and; 3) acrylic or mixed media

of a finished book.
Discussion will include the "how to" personalize the journal for your
own specific requirements.

Parking instructions will be sent upon registration confirmation.
Limited enrollment.


*Thery McKinney, Instructor
Saturday, September 11, 2004, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
$75.00 (includes $25.00 materials fee)

Don't let the fear of gluing or sewing keep you from creating your own
books. Each participant will explore and finish six inventive book
structures, including a slit and slot construction and ox-plow pamphlet.
All materials will be supplied. Parking instructions will be sent upon
registration confirmation. Limited enrollment.



*Bob Muens, Instructor
A two-day workshop:
Saturday, Oct. 16, 2004, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

A well-made, attractive box is an essential element in the presentation
and production of artists' books, collectable books, or special objects.
In this workshop, participants will construct two types of boxes: a
lidded box covered with decorative paper using bone pin closures and an
archival clamshell box: the lidded box is simple, quick, and versatile;
the clamshell provides not only an elegant home for any book but also
aids in its preservation. Boxes incorporate techniques that can be
applied to a variety of structures. Binder's board, book cloth, bone
pins, Japanese ribbon and PVA adhesive will be provided. A list of basic
tools and other supplies required for the class, along with parking
instructions, will be sent upon registration confirmation.
Limited enrollment.
