Pyramid's Fabriano Paper/Print/Book intensive 2009

Hi all,

Here's the information about this year's Fabriano Paper, Print and Book intensive class, sponsored by Pyramid Atlantic and the Museum of Paper and Watermark in Fabriano.

It's being held during the time of the Palio, the medieval festival in Fabriano, so it's a fantastic cultural experience as well as amazing instruction by Italian masters in watermark, traditional bindings, and copper-plate etching. Let me or Jose Dominguez know if you have any questions about the trip.

All best,
Lynn Sures
Pyramid Atlantic Art Center is sponsoring “Paper, Print and Book” led by artist Lynn Sures in conjunction with Giorgio Pellegrini of the Museum of Paper and Watermark, Fabriano, Italy.  The course will offer students two weeks of intensive study at the Museum with time to enjoy the beautiful Marche region. 

Traditional Italian book arts topics covered will be papermaking, watermark-making, intaglio printmaking, and binding. Instruction will be given by noted Italian masters in these techniques. 

Field trips include such medieval cities as Assisi and Gubbio, as well as natural landmarks.  

Papermaking in the tradition of the Italians, including line and chiaroscuro watermarks, will be offered with master papermaker Luigi Mecella in the museum papermill. 

Instruction in various forms of traditional Italian bookbinding will take place in the museum’s bindery with master bookbinder Giuseppe Baldinelli.   

Traditional intaglio techniques will be offered by Roberto Stelluti, celebrated local etcher represented in the collection of the Uffizi in Florence, in his own exceptional studio as well as the museum’s new 	printmaking studio. 

Trips to Assisi to see the Basilica of Saint Francis, to a working bindery in Gubbio, to Raphael’s home of Urbino, and an excursion to the Grottoes of Frassasi, the Conero national park and Adriatic seashore—all near Fabriano—will complete the your immersion in the cultural heritage of this historic region of Italy. 

Cost of $3,000.00 includes tuition and most materials, 4-star hotel with full breakfast, transportation on most field trips.
