Poet and publisher of Honeybee Press Benjamin Aleshire will offer a special opportunity at BluSeed, for those interested in pursuing different aspects of book arts. Are you a writer who’s always wanted to bind a chapbook? Do you work with text and want to experiment with letterpress broadsides? Maybe you want to work with paper and create a block carving for cards or journals. At BluSeed, you can work one-on-one or in a group with the publisher of a press which specializes in traditional book-arts, using a Vandercook cylinder press, binding equipment, and papermaking facilities.
The days for this unique workshop are August 28- September 8 9am-10 pm (except on 9/8 time will be 9am-5pm). You the participant are free to personalize the workshop: choose your own project as well as the day and time which works best for you! Plan on these types of projects to take at least 4 hours. To enroll, please send a brief description of the project you have in mind to Benjamin Aleshire firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call Ben at (802) 598-8308. Cost of this workshop begins at $150/project per day and can further be negotiated with the artist.
