Re: [BKARTS] with whom to study?

I think this is a really tough question. How much would you be willing to contribute towards this? In today's economy especially, don't expect much (if any) pay, and someone at the beginning of the journey is going to cost the other party (let's call them the master) time and thus $$$ they won't be earning, even if you're volunteering. I don't really know of any cohesive book arts "programs" of a 6 month duration, anywhere really. The Garage Annex School (<http://www.garageannexschool.com/>) has great workshops, but those are mostly weekends. They do offer a Summer Institute, but that is more hard-core bookbinding.

Can't really think of any individuals...

I began making books one year ago by taking Dan Essig's 5 books in 5 days class...fantastic! Since then I've taken a class here and there mostly learning from books and kits (I live in rural NC). I want to learn all types of bindings (w/ and w/out adhesive, paper making and folding plus boxes and enclosures) that don't require a lot of equipment. Who do you think is the most well-rounded person with whom I could "apprentice" (in or outside the US)?

How much experience do you have? What kind of binding are you interested in?

6 months is not a long time so I would recommend studying with one person and really learning how they do it.
