2 special workshops, Portland, OR



OREGON BOOK ARTS GUILD



Working with tools is not that mysterious, once you start doing it.


Jim Croft



SHARPENING AND SHAPING TOOLS

Working with bone, wood, bamboo and steel, participants will make various
shaped folders, spatulas and knives.  Inherent in this will be the
sharpening, care, use and repair of the above tools.  Participants have the
option of bringing one of your own tools to learn how to sharpen it.  The
process will be hand-powered, although the use of bench grinders and belt
sanders will also be discussed.

Saturday  May 6

9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

$75. includes materials and lunch



MAKE A BONE FOLDER IN ONE DAY

Croft will demonstrate and guide us in making several bone folders.  Croft
will show us how to shape bone with a hewing blade, then refine the surface
of the bone folder with sandpaper and steel wool.

Sunday  May 7

9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

$75. includes materials and lunch.


JIM CROFT has taught Making Tools By Hand at the 1995 and 1998 Paper and
