Everything You Wanted to Know About Paper But Didn’t Know Who to Ask
Our guest speaker Is Jill Littlewood. For forty years, Jill has been exploring different parts of the book! With a degree in drawing from the Art Institute in Chicago, she later studied letterpress printing at the Woman’s Building in Los Angeles. Scientific illustration for the Natural Museum In Los Angeles followed, along with Western and Chinese caliigraphy, bookbinding, and finally papermaking. Some of her works push the line between book art and illustrations: they are books you walk through, entirely made of handmade paper, with hundreds of her illustrations and writings embedded in them. Most recently Jill had been making sculptural pieces out of her handmade paper.
This is our regular Saturday meeting format at Valle Verde, in the Ray Schneider Social Room inside the Adminstration Building, 900 Calle de los Amigos, Santa Barbara, CA 805-883-4000
