Paste Paper and Star Books with Neila Kun

March 11, 2017
10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Free Library of Philadelphia, Parkway Central

Paste paper is a three dimensional decorative paper used in book making. Marks are made in the colored paste with fingers, tools and rubber stamps. There is a depth that develops in the paste as it dries. The papers can be used for covers and end papers. In the second part of the workshop we will make a star book using paste paper pages. Bring bookbinding tools – ruler, pencil, bone folder, sewing needle – if you have them, otherwise there will be tools to borrow. There will be a 20 minute break for lunch at noon, bring a bag lunch.

Neila Kun received her MFA from Tyler School of Art and has been teaching workshops and classes for the past 16 years. Some have been at the Norristown Arts League, MCCC’s Continuing Education Department, Iowa’s The Scattergood School, Phoenixville Art Center, and Horticultural Society of Pennsylvania . Before that she worked at a private mint sculpting medals and coins. Her work is held in many collections.
