the Book Arts Guild presents a 

Paper Embellishment Workshop taught by Randi Parkhurst

Cost: $75 for BAG members, $85 for non-members  (includes $25 supply fee)

Create your own custom papers with the rich colors and textures of leather, bark and wood. We will also make semi-transparent papers with thread sandwiched between two layers of paper for a stained glass effect. We'll use unusual tools, inexpensive papers and easy techniques to make beautiful papers. These papers can be used for book covers, boxes, collage and many art and craft projects. Each student will go home with a stack of large papers. Nearly all the materials and tools are provided by the instructor. This workshop is suitable for beginners and experienced students.

The supplies used in the class will be provided: kraft paper, sketch paper, thread, PVA glue, all paints, roller brushes, foam core boards, palette paper, masking tape

Students will bring: scissors, razor knife or X-Acto knife with extra blades

There is free parking below the 2100 building and street parking on adjacent blocks. The classroom is on the second floor. The 2100 Building is accessible via elevator and stairs.

Class will be filled on a first-come, first served basis with a maximum of 15 students. Registrations will be confirmed via email or mail.

Randi Parkhurst is a book artist and arts instructor in Olympia,WA. She creates interactive book art that flips, swings, rolls and snaps together, providing a unique view of this versatile medium. All of Randi’s pieces are made with her hand painted papers. Natural elements, such as leaves and flowers, stones and sticks, and rich, deep colors permeate her work, reflecting the beauty of her Pacific Northwest home. Randi has taught at the Penland School of Crafts, Arrowmont School of Art & Craft, Morgan Paper Conservatory, Pacific Northwest Art School, Focus on Book Arts Conference, Letters of Joy Calligraphy Conference and more.
