[BKARTS] 2 spots-- Spitler & Smith Marbling and Paste Paper Workshop

Two Spots left!
Marbling and Pastepaper Decoration Workshop
Saturday & Sunday, April 28 & 29, 2007
Instructors: Pam Smith, aka  Marblesmith and Priscilla Spitler.
Where: Buescher State Park, WPA Hall, Smithville, Texas.

Fine printer and paper marbler Pam Smith resides in Abiquiu, New Mexico. For 28 years, she created and directed the small press program and exhibit at the Press of the Palace of Governors, Museum of New Mexico in Santa Fe. Years of book design, with attention to detail in letterpress printing, helped Pam develop and edition fine hand marbled paper editions under her Marblesmith imprint. As an instructor, her enthusiasm for the craft is contagious.

Priscilla Spitler has been creating paste and pochoir (stenciled) papers for her books and fine bindings for over 20 years. She finds these decorative paper techniques to be a natural extension of her original background in printmaking, allowing for experimentation on paper that adds a unique quality to her artist books.

It is sure to be an action packed weekend. To accommodate the popularity of this workshop, it is being held in a large recreation hall with access to outside work areas overlooking a small lake in the park.

Each day, half the group will be making paste papers, while the other half marbles paper. After a lunch break, the groups will switch. The second day will be more experimental. Studio may be open Saturday evening for more exploration.

Fees will include considerable materials. $250.
If you are interested in attending, please email Priscilla Spitler at prispit@xxxxxxxxxxxxx or call the studio at: (512) 237-5960.
The Hands On Bookbinding studio is located in Smithville, Texas, 43 miles SE of Austin, off Highway 71 east. Buescher State Park is just one mile outside of Smithville.
