[BKARTS] Letterpress and Papermaking Demo and Classes - indianapolis



Papermaking and Printing Gone Wild!

Blue Stone Folk School will host a demonstration of their popular, and
downright fun, papermaking and bookart classes this Saturday, October 27
at the Wild Bookstore, 884 Logan Street, in Noblesville from 10:00 until
2:00.  Adults and children will have opportunities to make their own paper
and to print a card on a small hand printing press.  Geoff Davis, director
of the folk school, and Emily Vance, paper artist, will be on hand to
answer questions about the processes and about our new letterpress and
bookart programs.

Our first letterpress classes, Holiday Lead and Linoleum - Introduction to
Letterpress, offers our artist-students an opportunity to explore lino-cut
and letterpress techniques while creating their own holiday cards or
invitations.  Lino-cut, a process of carving linoleum to create and print
beautiful images, will be learned to illustrate the cards.
Artist-students will hand-set movable type to print a holiday greeting.
Each participant will receive 24 cards and envelopes as well as samples of
other students? work.  There will be opportunities to print more cards
during weekly open studio times.

The class is offered on two different weekends on November 3 and 4 or
November 10 and 11.  Saturday classes will be 9:00 to 4:00 with a lunch
break.  Sunday classes will be 12:00 to 4:00.  The cost for the class ia
$125 or $100 each with a friend.  There is a $50 deposit required.
