About: The Roycroft Crafts community of Elbert Hubbard circa 1896-1915
produced astonishing amounts of hand crafted items that have become highly
collectable and highly regarded. The Roycroft Campus Corporation presents a
weekend workshop series which allows participants to work as artisans did
100 years ago.

A collaborative workshop series will take participants through all facets of
book production. Participants will work on components of one of three books
throughout the weekend. Workshops include: Papermaking, paper decoration,
hand set type, hand printing, printmaking, illumination, and various binding
techniques. Each participant will take home new skills in the book arts as
well as a copy of one of the three books. These will be the first Roycroft
books to be made at the Campus in over 60 years! Participants will select
one of 3 tracks and follow the workshops outlines toward the final book.
Each track is limited to 12 participants

Instructors include: Tom Bojanowski, Rachael Hetzel, Richard Kegler, Brian
Maloney, Lynne McElhaney, Kyle Schelsinger, Peter Sowiski.

Cost: The cost for the weekend is $250 including all materials, cocktail
