[BKARTS] Parchment Making Workshop May 18th-19th 2007



PARCHMENT MAKING WORKSHOP
For those who are interested, Jesse Meyer will be offering another parchment making workshop the Spring of 2007. It will be a two day event held May 18th and 19th at The Meyer Family Tannery and Jesse's studio, in Montgomery New York. It will include:


- Demonstrations of initial wetwork. (dehairing, fleshing, etc.)
- Soaking and hands on stretching of a calfskin and a goatskin.
- Scraping, sanding and finishing of the skins of your choice.

Each participant will go home with a fair colored calfskin,a goatskin, dyed a color of your choice, and probably some dirty clothes. The cost of the workshop will be $225 (which will include the cost of the raw skins). These workshops have always been a blast for all involved, as well as being an in-depth education and an opportunity to purchase parchment and vellum at the studio. Participation will be limited to 12 people.
For more information about the workshop, visit the website at www.pergamena.net or please contact Jesse Meyer @ jesse@xxxxxxxxxxxxx or 845.649.5806
