Midwest Craft Pilgrimage, Part 2
Tomorrow morning Annie & I head out on the second leg of our Midwest Craft Pilgrimage. First stop is Oxford, New York where we will spend two days making paper on Mina Takahashi and Marco Breuer's farm. From Oxford we will wind our way up to Shanty Bay, Ontario for pochoir lessons with Walter Bachinsky and Janis Butler of Shanty Bay Press. From there we will slip back down to the lower 48 for two days of hand press printing with Bob and Freddy Baris at the Press on Scroll Road. Propelled by the intoxicating vapors of craft immersion we will plow onward to Chicago where I will be giving this year's American Printing History Association Lieberman Lecture at the Newberry Library.
