Just a little note:
of the classes I personally offer are meant to provide a progression in inter-related book arts opportunities. It is not necessary
to take them in any specific order, but understand many are complimentary in nature. Likewise, a good foundational
class in tools and working methods will be to your advantage for intermediate or advanced work. By taking a decorative paper workshop, you may utilize your work in a book structure as text pages, end sheets or
as a cover. Similarily, by taking papermaking you may use the results in a book or as a substrate for a print, drawing,
painting, or with letterpress. Think
of them as part of, or a means to an end, not the end in themselves. (not that many can not stand alone and be appreciated
as completed work) It is also for this reason I repeat some foundational workshops more often. Understanding the method to
my madness may be helpful when making workshop choices.

Tucked among the rolling farms and woodlands of rural south-central
Wisconsin's landscape is a funky/retro dome house/studio from the 1970's. Greeting you is an over sized gazebo that
envelops you in country charm (a feeding station to many a hummingbird). On the opposite side of the dome are large windows
that capture the picturesque views from both the studio and dining/lounge area. Large decks and patios surround the dome with
plenty of shade or sun throughout the day.
