[BKARTS] 1994 Haystack Workshop

In 1994 at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, 
Maine, Bernie Vinzani and Katie MacGregor  taught paper making 
in one studio, as Walter Tisdale with Claire Van Vliet taught book 
forms in the next. It was a demanding dual workshop. 

Bernie, Kate and Walter were available, professional and good 
humored. I still treasure the beautiful papers we made in that 
workshop, along with the two miniature volumes of book forms, 
many of which none of us could ever have accomplished without 
Walter's clear, patient instruction.  
In a later Haystack book arts workshop,  loosey-goosey paper 
making technique were taught, which while great fun, made me 
realize what a rare opportunity I had studying with Vinzano and 
MacGregor. Their papers testify to that!

And yes,  Steve is correct, they ARE "the best that can be found 
in Book Arts."

Subject: Three Maine Book Artists 

Dear Folks 
I was in Maine recently and had an opportunity to interview three 
amazing book people--papermakers, letterpress printers and 
educators Bernie Vinzani, Katie MacGregor, and Walter Tisdale. 
These interviews are available for free by going to iTunes and 
subscribing to the podcast BOOK ARTISTS AND POETS, or by 
going to our website and  listening to them on your computer. 
These people remind me of all of the best that can be found in 
Book Arts. Happy holidays. Steve Miller >>
