Each of us handles dozens of pieces of paper each day. Paper is such a pervasive part of our lives that we rarely think of it as anything other than a work-a-day surface for commercial print or a quick pencilled note. PAPER TRAILS offers the opportunity to explore paper in new and different ways. On view will be hand-made and hand-embellished papers, fine calligraphy, hand-made art books, letter press items, origami, unique cards and gifts, and imaginative paper designs and fabrications. Several vendors offer items for sale.
The Second Annual Paper Trails
Saturday, October 19th, 11-4 pm
218 St Helens Avenue, Tacoma Washington.
Several vendors will demonstrate old and new paper techniques. Two make-and-take tables offer hands-on projects for adults and kids. Information about local groups involved in these pursuits are featured. Event sponsors are Tacoma Calligraphy Guild, Tacoma Book Artists, and Puget Sound Book Artists. PSBA recently received the 2013 AMOCAT Arts Award for Community Outreach by an Organization, due, in part, to its support of events such as Paper Trails. This event is open to the public (of all ages) and free. For more information, visit www.kingsbooks.com
