Just a little note:
of the classes I personally offer are meant to provide a progression in inter-related book arts opportunities. It is not necessary
to take them in any specific order, but understand many are complimentary in nature. Likewise, a good foundational
class in tools and working methods will be to your advantage for intermediate or advanced work. By taking a decorative paper workshop, you may utilize your work in a book structure as text pages, end sheets or
as a cover. Similarily, by taking papermaking you may use the results in a book or as a substrate for a print, drawing,
painting, or with letterpress. Think
of them as part of, or a means to an end, not the end in themselves. (not that many can not stand alone and be appreciated
as completed work) It is also for this reason I repeat some foundational workshops more often. Understanding the method to
my madness may be helpful when making workshop choices.
