This month's Humboldt County Library display contains examples made by NORBAG members at workshops held out of the area. Every year in April, the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts holds the Newport Paper Arts Festival, which consists of three days of celebrating papermaking, surface embellihsment, bookmaking, bindings, techniques, and tools for working with paper and fiber.
Focus on Book Arts (FOBA) workshops are held every other year in June at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. This year there were five days of workshops taught by nationally recognized book and paper artists.
These "out of the area" workshops are a wonderful way to explore new techniques and styles, and to meet new wild wacky, and talented book artists! Join us sometime!
