[BKARTS] Upcoming workshop, "Paper Mill Workshop", in Salt Lake City

Hi.  We are hosting another workshop and the details are included
below.  Thanks!


 Paper Mill Workshop
 Western Style Hand Papermaking
 May 21 thru May 24, 2008

 Using professional paper making equipment participants will work in a
 setting similar to a historic production hand paper mill to make
 quality text and art papers IN QUANTITY.  With an emphasis on making
 paper that can be used for printing, drawing and painting,
 participants will work with cotton and hemp fiber, explore
 watermarking, and all the steps in making useful paper in both laid
 and wove finish and leave with a goodly amount of personalized paper.
 There will also be a discussion about the necessaries of setting up a
 personal paper making operation.

 Workshop instructor Rob Buchert, along with his wife Georgia, is
 proprietor of Tryst Press, a letterpress and paper making studio
 established in 1993 in Provo, Utah.  Tryst Press books and papers are
 to be found in many public and private collections throughout North
 America and Europe.  Rob is also the 2008 winner of the prestigious
 Carl Hertzog Award for Excellence in Book Design.  Among other
 projects, Rob is currently working on the book Mould and Deckle, Vat
 and Press, a manual for setting up a private paper mill.

 Participants are encourage to bring a simple line drawing they will
 convert into bent wire for use as their personal watermark.  Paper
 making is a messy, wet activity; dress accordingly.

 Cost: $390.00 (includes materials).
 Registration deadline is May 9, 2008.
 Workshop is limited to 8 participants.

 Workshop location: Scrub Oak Bindery, 254 S. Main St., Salt Lake City, UT
