Diana Patterson’s home
659, 3rd Avenue NW, Calgary 403-283-4347.
Visit Diana Patterson’s book collection of mainly late 18th century books. She has made particular collections of the novel Tristram Shandy, which contain a hand-made marbled leaf in it, and also of books bound in decorated “wastepaper”, usually marbled wastepaper, but sometimes paste paper. The “wastepaper” is usually printer’s waste.
In addition, Laurie Shelton from Burlington, Vermont will join us. Laurie is a specialist in papermaking used in early childhood education.
Bring new work, work in progress, news and finds to share with the group.
Bring your altered book if it is ready to be handed off to the next alteration partner in your group.
