Real Mail Fridays, Book Arts 101 Among Offerings From Jaffe Center for Book Arts

Remember receiving real letters in the mail?  Maybe you wrote to a pen pal overseas, or a thank you note for a gift.  The Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University’s Wimberly Library in Boca Raton, Florida  is the place to capture or recapture this art!  “Real Mail Fridays” takes place the first Friday of every month.  The Rickie Report shares the details about this and Book Arts 101.

 

jaffejcba_black_header

 

 

We’re already sick of summer. So are lots of other people, apparently, because folks are already registering for our October introductory immersion (and no wonder, it’s always our most popular… which is why we offer it twice).

 

BOOK ARTS 101: Hist Whist
Instructor John Cutrone

Your choice of two sessions:
Saturday October 25, 2014 or Sunday October 26, 2014
1 to 4:30 PM
Tuition schedule: Self-determined (your tuition is a gift to the JCBA Education Fund).

 

 

This Book Arts 101 workshop begins with the All Hallow’s Eve magic of “Hist Whist” by poet e.e. cummings. We tune into that Halloween spirit by turning our eye toward the spookier items in the Jaffe Collection followed by a visit to our haunted print shop as we work our spell to transmogrify you into a book artist, at least for an afternoon. Is anything what it seems? Who knows.

 

 

 

We’ll begin with a screening of a 20-minute video about JCBA and the amazing collection of artists’ books that is at its core. We’ll follow this with an in-depth viewing of some of the artists’ books in the collection––books that will entertain, inspire, and astound. We’ll honor the season and Halloween by finding some particularly spooky and autumnal books from the collection, and you can expect a local ghost story or two, as well, from the instructor’s cache of Convivio Dispatches from Lake Worth.
After a necessary break for coffee and cookies, we’ll move on to the JCBA Letterpress Studio, where each participant will print a sheet of paper from type set by hand out of JCBA’s collection of historic wood type. These sheets will be the covers for the books we’ll make, a brief history of the book arts that we’ll bind by hand in the Single Signature Pamphlet stitch, a simple bookbinding technique that you can use again and again in your own book projects. You’ll go home with a book you made yourself––one that you can read as sleep calls later that night, as you reflect on the new outlook on books (and maybe even life) that you’ve found earlier that evening at JCBA. “For there is great joy in knowing how to do things.” All levels.

BOOK ARTS 101: Still Summer
Instructor John Cutrone
Saturday September 13, 2014
1 to 4:30 PM
Tuition schedule: Self-determined (your tuition is a gift to the JCBA Education Fund).

 

This Book Arts 101 workshop is full but we are ready to start a waiting list in case we get cancelations. The theme of this one is “Still Summer” because here in Florida, summer takes all its sweet time leaving, and in these parts, September is no different from July or August. This workshop is designed to turn you into a book artist for a day, while we celebrate that summerness and even conjure some thoughts to show summer the door.

Donation: $10

Our next letterwriting social is next week on Friday September 5th, beginning at 3 in the afternoon and ending at 6. You supply 10 bucks, we supply everything you need to write great letters: papers (commercial papers, handmade papers), pens (all kinds of them, from ballpoint pens to dipping pens), rubber stamps and other mark-making supplies, cookies, coffee, tea, cocoa, postage stamps, good music and good company.

Jewelry Trends to Consider

Look at any fashion magazine: You will see jewelry and accessories to go with the new season’s clothing.  What to create for the fashion-conscious art patron?  The Rickie Report shares some insight into Jewelry Trends.  

 

 

 

 Jewelry Trends

 

 

From large, massive pieces of jewelry to a simple pair of stud earrings, it is clear that jewelry as an accessory is here to stay.  For artists who create jewelry pieces, it is important to understand the latest trends but at the same time, stay true to your own artistic self!   Thankfully, we live in an era where variety is not only accepted but embraced.  

 

 

METALS

 

  • Gold has always been the standard, but metals ( think silver, steel, bronze) are hot.  For those working with non-metallic mediums, think of these in terms of a color palette.  

 

  • Metal tubes ( check out your local hardware store or plumbing supplier)

 

  • Chains!  Even better: Multiple chains!

 

  • Watch parts and keys are still big influences

 

  • Wire – wrapped gemstones, cabachons, shells

 

  • Bent wire.  So you’re not into wire-wrapping.  A simple twist of metal is sometimes just enough to enhance a bracelet.
  • Stacked rings ( make them interchangeable, so your clients come back for more)

 

 

Organic

 

  • Be Colorful!

 

  • Consider different fibers  and various textures (check out a local knitting shop) 

 

  • Embroidery floss

 

  • Love a piece of fabric?  Make a wide bracelet!   (Addition of rhinestones or other bling is optional)

 

  • Bohemian styles

 

  • Native American styles

 

  • Woven with chevrons or intricate patterns

 

  • Stop during your walk at the beach and look for shells with natural holes

 

  • Up-cycle scrabble tiles, papers, photos, bottle caps

 

 

Leather, Wood, Etc.

 

  • Think male!

 

  • Think female!

 

  • Wide cuff bracelets with or without metal accents

 

  • Wood beads on leather

 

  • Wood beads with chain

 

  • Wood beads with rubber “O” rings ( get thee to your hardware store!)

 

  • A small portion of a driftwood branch can be wire-wrapped and hang as a simple pendant

 

 

Things to consider:

 

BODY JEWELRY

 

  • Think ABOVE the elbow for bracelets

 

  • Consider the FULL FOOT instead of just the toe rings

 

  • Arm cuffs

 

  • Bib necklaces

 

  • Ankle chains with charms

 

  • Long necklaces that can be worn in front OR in back ( to highlight some of the back-baring fashions)

 

  • Pearls NEVER go out of fashion!

 

 

There is no “right” or “wrong” with jewelry design.  We point out that as concern for easing neck pain and back pain increases, lighter – weight neck pieces are going to become “hot”.  Your patrons may have metal allergies, so be prepared to offer different earring wires.  AND don’t forget those who may not have pierced ears.  It is easy to convert pierced earrings into clips.

 

The Rickie Report looks forward

to sharing

YOUR jewelry creations with our readers.

"You Take Such Liberties" by Raymond P. Neubert

“You Take Such Liberties” by Raymond P. Neubert

Ray Neubert will be teaching a new course called “Being The Artist You Were Meant To Be”, at The Armory’s new facility in Lake Worth.  This class is meant for artists who are tired of being told what and how to create and keep ending with their art looking like the teacher’s work or other more famous artists. The class begins on September 2nd – October 21st and run for 8 weeks.  
"

“Ray Neubert”

Ray explains, “Each week we will have an assigned task which we will review at the beginning of the next lesson.  This is not a class in how to make great art but to focus on what individual great art is in each of us and how to tap into our life experiences to uncover it.  I will not tell you what your journey is but encourage you to explore the possibilities the journey can be.  Personal experiences from all participants will be explored.  Each week will begin with a discussion, continue with exploration of the topics in our personal experience with our art and end with an assignment to be worked on for the following week.”
by Raymond P. Neubert

by Raymond P. Neubert

“Such subjects as…Honesty…Personal Preferences…’The Outliers’…’Cosmos’…Surviving Critiquing…Successes & Failures…Likes and Dislikes…Problem Solving and Best Time To Work.  New topics will be explored as they arise.  Our first assignment will be to bring sketching materials and at least one large object for group sketching to the first class.  In eight weeks we will each create a personal work of art which we will use to begin to explore and document what we each are meant to be as an honest and unique artist.  We will also compile a list of long term and short term goals” Ray says.

The Tuesday class is from 3:00-5:00pm The eight week class is $200.00.  Contact The Armory Art Center to register at 561-832-1776.

Ray Neubert’s work ” is influenced by my father’s word play, comics of all genres and heroic Propaganda Art.  My NeuArt began in 2009 when I combined drawing, colored ink and word play on lined paper in saturated colors.  I continue with Metamorphosis in acrylics on canvas.”

During these lectures each speaker will share their passion for the arts and their identity as an artist.  You’ll discover how each began their incredible artistic journey, their background, techniques, mentors, what drives and/or motivates them and where they see their work taking them into the future.  If you have not attended one of our lectures prior to now you are in for a fabulous treat and will, at the same time, learn something new in the process.

Irene Jalowayski  specializes in fused glass and silver jewelery including gorgeous pendants, earrings and bracelets.  New in her line is a series of bib necklaces made from cast glass beads with matching earrings.   Irene casts these beads from ground glass in specially made molds.  The glass is fired at about 1400 degrees.

Irene’s pendants and cabochon earrings are also fused and are made with a lot of dichroic glass.  The dichroic glass gives her pieces a shine and sparkle that is enhanced by the silver findings that  are used to finish them.  Each piece of Irene’s is different and one of a kind.  They make for wonderful gifts or gorgeous additions to any lady’s jewelery wardrobe.
