Flag-style Bookbinding
Bookbinding specialist, Kay Sperry, will teach you how to create a "flag book" in this unique book structure that will thrill & amaze! The "flag book" has a concertina (accordion fold) spine with "flags" attached in an alternating manner. Therefore the book can be "read" by turning the pages in the traditional manner, but when fully open becomes a 3 dimensional piece of art! Once the mechanics of the structure are mastered, the possibilities are nearly unlimited. We will work with rectangular "flags" for this workshop, and samples illustrating other options will be shown.

PDQ Printmaking
In this short workshop, woodcut artist Caye Dreiss, will teach participants the principles of relief printing by making a linocut. You'll draw a design, cut a linoleum block, and print it in black and white by hand or by using a press. Each participant will gain knowledge about materials, tools and processes and produce a small limited edition of their own linocut prints. Suitable for beginners and artists looking to refresh their skills or expand their repertoire.
