The NY Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers presents:

Color Theory with Paste Paper
A Workshop with Julia Rabin
at the Bindery of Judith Ivry
Saturday and Sunday
June 20-21, 2009

Please join the New York Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers as we
learn about color theory and color matching while making beautiful
paste papers with bookbinder and architectural paint conservator
Julia Rabin.

Discussion of color theory, mixing colors, and how to color match
for repairs on old books will be interwoven throughout the two days.

We will mix pastes--building a sample packet that illustrates the
range of finishes that can be achieved with paste. While working on
this useful reference packet we will create paste papers
implementing a range of effects. The packet will also include
samples of color mixing and color matching to refer to later. You
can expect to leave with at least ten painted sheets and the sample

Paper and acrylic will be provided. However if you have special
paint, paper, or tools you would like to use on your paste papers
please bring them with you, and wear clothes that can get paint on
them. Julia Leete Rabin studied fine arts and holds a degree from
the University of Massachusetts, and London City and Guilds' Craft
and Advanced Craft Certificates in Decorative Painting and
Conservation. After running a business in architectural paint
conservation and teaching decorative painting for 12 years, Julia
decided to change direction. Since 2000, Julia has focused
exclusively on book binding, working with Peter Geraty at the Praxis
bindery. Julia lives in the woods of Western Massachusetts,
gardening and drawing inspiration for her own work from the natural
