Barb Tetenbaum, book arts department head of the Oregon College of Art and Craft, has asked us to help spread the word about a special workshop this March.
British pop-up star Paul Johnson is coming from London to spend nearly a week in Portland, and to teach a weekend workshop March 25 and 26. A lecture is planned the Friday before that will be open to the public. Barb adds, "But first we need the workshop to fly and are hoping some of your members will
be interested and tell their comrades...It will be such an honor to bring Paul to town and we want to share his talents
with as many as we can."
A full description of the class and on-line registration is available on the OCAC website.
Important: There's an early bird registration option, making the price for the workshop $275 + $15 studio fee before January 15. The price goes up $30 after January 15.
Pictured is Paul Johnson's unique book, Enchanted Garden, which you may well remember from the 2010 Pop Up Now! show at 23 Sandy Gallery.
Shawn Sheehy's Mechanics of Movables workshop, sponsored by the GBW in October, was a great success, and we hope to help bring other book arts luminaries to the region in the future.
