Re: [BKARTS] In the beginning...

Where are you located, April? And would circumstances warrant a move out of your area or do you prefer to stay there? The contacts you establish through your classes might point you in the right direction tho I would recommend researching the online portfolios of the experts (not me, lol!) who post to this site to find those with whom you resonate as far as style and direction of work since there are so many kinds of book arts available to pursue. There are many excellent programs out there also! : ) If you can afford to travel a bit to attend different workshops you would probably find someone with whom there would be compatibility.

Hello all!

I apologize if this is not the appropriate forum for my question, but I
thought I could pick a few of your brains. I have been teaching myself
bookbinding from books and the internet for a few years now, and will be
starting some evening courses in binding this winter. My hope is to
eventually apprentice or start equivalent full-time training. Any advice on
this? How and when does one usually begin an apprenticeship? Would one be
expected to have formal training before becoming an apprentice?

Thank you for any guidance you can give!
