The Friends of Dard Hunter is a national non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the practice of hand papermaking, allied paper arts, the book arts, and other arts practiced by Dard Hunter (1883-1966).

Demonstrations would be given on Friday, October 24th or Saturday, October 25th, and should be 30-45 minutes in length.

In your proposal, please complete the information below, providing a description of your presentation (50–150 words), specify the maximum number of observers and whether you would conduct the demonstration multiple times. Please include a brief biographical statement (two sentences maximum) and a resume. We encourage you to submit your proposal via e-mail to Jill Littlewood at jill@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The deadline is May 1, 2008, 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time. You may also submit your material via regular mail that should be received by the deadline. If desired, mailed materials will be returned in a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) that you provide.

The 2008 venue will require that demonstrations have little equipment needs, with little or no water (i.e. dry demonstrations).
