Artist Talk with Lynn Sures

January 31, 2020 -


Learn more about Lynn's work and her upcoming trip to Italy, which she has graciously extended to the Frederick Book Arts Center Community!

Take a trip to Fabriano, Italy to work with Italian artisans and artists, who will teach you fine papermaking and watermarks, leather bookbinding, and chine-collé etching during a week of intensive daily workshops. Then switch gears to travel through the north of Italy, stopping at niche museums, artist studios, independent publishers...and sampling some of the best cuisine the country has to offer. The trip takes place in June, when all of Fabriano celebrates their medieval festival, focusing on different historic traditions each day. Lynn Sures, trip leader, is fluent in Italian, helping you to bridge any gap as you get a true insider's view of a wonderful cultural heritage site.

Lynn is an artist based in Wheaton, MD, and has widely exhibited and taught in the fields of papermaking, book arts, and printmaking.
