[BKARTS] Monique Lallier bookbinding workshop, September 20-24, 2009, Camp Cheerio, North Carolina

Monique Lallier will teach the week-long workshop "Decorative Paper and Drop Spine Binding" as part of the Fall 2009 Camp Cheerio Retreat in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, about 1 hour drive northwest of Winston-Salem. The natural setting is peaceful, inspiring and energizing.

During the week students will work on two related techniques:

For the first two days students will make an innovative form of decorative paper. The technique is neither paste paper nor marble paper. Students will use a broad variety of media: gouache, water color, ink, or dye for leather; on a wide variety of papers: Kraft, tissue, Japanese, Mohawk, Arches (anything but very thick paper).

Students will spend the remainder of the week learning the "Drop-spine Binding" (similar to the drum leaf), with a book that students have already prepared, i.e. a paper back, a sewn book or a pack of single sheets that can be fan-glued in class. Students will use their decorative papers as end papers. The book can have a spine of leather, cloth, fabric or paper; and the boards can be covered in paper or cloth.

Students should arrive with a book ready to cover, or single sheets that can be glued in class. Also bring colors, cotton balls (that do not leave fuzzy particles), disposable rubber gloves, paper (a lot), and bookbinding tools.

Included in the cost of this retreat are: workshop, meals (15), and five nights lodging. Camp Cheerio is located in a magnificent mountain setting about 1 hour drive northwest of Winston-Salem, in Roaring Gap, North Carolina. (near Sparta, NC). Total cost is $695. Deposit of $200.
