[BKARTS] Dolph Smith at Shakerag Workshops

I'd like to remind everyone that Dolph Smith will be teaching a class at Shakerag Workshops in Sewanee TN in June.
Books on the Move
June 10 - 16, 2007

Course Description
The early emphasis in this class will be on developing a clear understanding of traditional multi-sectioned book binding. During the week the emphasis will shift to thinking of the book as a small kinetic sculpture. Participants will make covers and text blocks with moving parts, the notion being to allow moving parts to be in concert with pop-up. A few classic pop-up devices will be included. Books will be built of wood, copper, leather, found and made parts, and will be finished with milk paint, graphite, veneers, and imagination. Participants will be encouraged towards a balance between finished work and, more importantly, a collection of 'sketches" or ideas to be completed at home. Dolph says that as the instructor he will "encourage and help develop student ideas from all areas, including left field."
