The Southeast Guild of Book Workers is pleased to offer the following workshop:
Small Structures, Printed Layers
taught by Sarah McDermott at FAR's Small Craft Advisory Press at Florida State University
November 1-2, 2014
Cost: $165 for students and Southeast Guild of Book Workers members, $185 for general
Workshop description: In this combined bookbinding and letterpress printing workshop, participants will exercise both their spontaneous and structured sides. On the first day, we will embrace improvisation on the press as we experiment with various methods of creating layered imagery- using pressure printing, monoprint techniques, and the printshop's collection of large wood type.
On the second day, image and structure will combine in unanticipated ways as we integrate these printed sheets into several small book structures, paying attention to precision as we learn variations on the pamphlet, folded single sheet, and long stitch bindings.
Throughout the workshop, we will take note of materials- investigating papers appropriate for both printing and folding.
No experience is necessary, but some bookbinding or craft experience would be helpful.
How to sign up: Email Allison Milham at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than the October 17th deadline. The class fee (including supplies) is $165 for students and Guild of Book Workers members, $185 for general registration. Payment must be made in advance. Space is limited to 10 students. Class time: 9-4 pm both days.

We are pleased to announce that our juror, Jessica Peterson, has chosen a winner! Jessica had a difficult time choosing a winner of this year's show and after much consideration she felt that Marcia Watt's entry, Eating with Chopsticks, best exemplified the theme of the show. I again would like to thank everyone who entered the show this year and we congratulate Marcia on her win!
