Paper Potluck

Saturday December 20, 2008
10am to 4pm
Newton, MA 

New England Chapter members,
Join us for a glimpse of Sid Berger’s spectacular decorated paper collection. Sid and his wife Michele Cloonan have been building their treasury for decades— a day will hardly be enough to absorb it all.  The collection includes a sample dating from 740 from Japan, proto-papers such as papyrus and parchment, a prodigious assortment of marbled papers, including Japanese marbling antecedent to Western marbling, and much more.  He also has a library of approximately 2,500 books on the subject.  This event will also be an opportunity to celebrate the holidays and catch up with fellow New England Chapter members.  A light brunch will be served, and we will be have a potluck lunch.

This event will be limited to 20 people- be sure to register soon as spots will fill up quickly.  New England Chapter members will have priority in reservations.  Directions will be sent directly to registrants. 

RSVP to our Events Coordinator, Christina Amato: xamato@yahoo.com

  1. Not surprisingly the visit to Sid Berger’s paper collection is fully booked. But please let us know if you are interested in an encore presentation– we will do our best to convince Sid to invite a second group in the future! Contact our events chair, Christina Amato at xamato@yahoo.com to express your interest in this or suggest other ideas for chapter events.
