The following is forwarded from our friends at the Garage Annex School in Northampton, MA. An interesting line up of workshops for 2009 and a new six week “summer institute.”
We are pleased to announce that the 2009 workshop schedule is now live on our newly revamped web site at garageannexschool.com Please visit the site and browse through the workshop program. You may also be interested in our new Summer Institute.The subject of the 2009 Summer Institute is leather bookbinding, including design techniques such as leather onlay and dyeing, gold tooling, and stamping. Students will produce full leather bindings as well as a series of models at various stages of completion. This is a six-week, full-time curriculum of study. Students should expect to work some evening and weekend hours. Because the Summer Institute will welcome up to twelve students for the six-week period we have arranged to provide meals and lodging at the residential housing of nearby Williston Northampton School.
The GAS Summer Institute is fully described on its own web page at:
