Ancient Cultures and New Frontiers: Magic with Polymer Clay
March 30th and 31st, Friday & Saturday, 9:00-5:00
The mystery of ancient cultures and far-away places inspires this workshop. The medium of polymer clay lends itself easily and uniquely to book arts. Explore three transfer techniques, carving, texturing and imprinting, antiquing and aging, molds of personal treasures, and intricate colored-clay designs such as Venetian Millefiore. Discover imitative ivory, metallic powders, foils, herbs, textures, and impressed designs. These techniques culminate in book covers, three-dimensional components for closures, collage and assemblage, thin pages, and dangling elements. Dayle Doroshow is a mixed media/polymer clay artist and owner of design studio Zingaro, stamp of distinction. She trained in traditional ceramics at Riverside Bell Tower Pottery program and the Columbia Extension program in New York City where she sold her pottery in Greenwich Village shops. Her jewelry, home décor, ethnic spirit dolls, and handcrafted books are exhibited in many galleries on the West Coast. Dayle teaches workshops across the United States.

Means to an End: A Binder's Box of Recipes

Medieval Metal, Modern Models
May 4th & 5th, Friday & Saturday, 9:00-5:00 
The Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers and the Book Arts Program present Peter Madden. Taking cues from the elaborate multi-paneled, religious icons of Medieval and Renaissance Europe, construct wooden triptychs featuring imagery printed on fabric. Theatrical yet intimate, these sculptural structures suggest elements of books, houses, boxes, lockets, and shrines. Completed pieces feature images or icons highlighted by patterns, textures, and embellishments. Learn simple metal-working techniques and several methods for hinging covers, including constructing handmade hinges from scrap metal. Create a portable, personal triptych and leave with the knowledge and inspiration to create more without the need for specialized equipment or tools. Peter Madden's unique handmade books are collected by and exhibited in major museums throughout the world. His work and techniques have been featured in publications about artists' books and alternative photography, including the recently published Penland Book of Handmade Books. He has received numerous fellowships, grants, and awards for his work in bookmaking. Peter is on the faculty of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and teaches and lectures across the country.
