Join us for some papercrafting fun this summer — and learn a little bit of history, too! Colleen Cavin is a fifth generation Oregonian. She studied calligraphy and book binding in Portland and then armed with a BA in art history and a Fulbright scholarship, she went to England to hone those skills. In 2003 she was elected a Fellow into the prestigious London–based Society of Scribes and Illuminators. She teaches calligraphy and book binding (and their respective histories) in the Portland area.

Of course, everything was manually printed on presses those days...books, daily papers, broadsides and "bills" (you know those signs that said post no bills here? they were about adverts), even "wanted" posters. The purpose of printing was to make multiple copies. In this workshop, we will draw into art foam to make our printing plates from which to pull our prints. Each person will take away a number of prints made from their one printing plate
