adhesives workshop in april

hello all! i just wanted to post a note that i'll be hosting and teaching an upcoming day-long workshop on adhesives and their uses in studio art, bookbinding and conservation. please see the info below, and contact me with any questions. i hope to see some of you there!

what: "how do i make it stick?"
instructor: tish brewer, paper conservator, bookbinder and artist
when: saturday, april 2, 2011. from 10am to 4pm.
where: my studio, 4101 commerce street suite 6 dallas, TX 75226
fee: $75 for members of the guild of book workers/$90 for non-members. registration required.

we are often faced with these questions: which adhesive for the best results? will my paper buckle, is it archival, how much adhesive should i use? what materials should i use for mending? this workshop is ideal for binders and artists alike, as the glut of adhesives available at art supplies can be quite overwhelming, and the "archival" label confusing. tish will quell your anxieties with valuable formulations, references, and considerations when applying an adhesive to, or repairing, materials such as paper, board, cloth, and leather. tish will also address specific questions about examples students may bring with them. cost includes materials provided for the workshop, instructor fee, and studio rental. for a supply list, directions, or more information, please contact tish at 214.827.0200.
