1. Enameling Essentials with Kris Bohanan
We will learn multiple enameling techniques such as stencil and

equipment, materials and supplies you will need to teach
enameling in your classroom. With two days dedicated to this
one subject you should learn a lot!
There will be materials fee of $35. Supplies to bring IF you have
them.......jeweler's saw and blades, (not necessary) necklace
chains, jeweler's pliers, beads.
About Kris Bohanan: I received my bachelor’s degree in Art Education from Emporia in 1973 and my Masters in Art Education from WSU in 1980. I have taught elementary art at Haven for 34 years. And I have also been secretary for KAEA for almost 20 years. Through the years, I have presented workshops at KAEA conferences 13 times presenting on a variety of topics from batik to baskets to fish kites. I also served on the Professional Growth and Standards Committee in 1995 and Kansas State Art Curriculum Revision Subcommittee in 2001-2. As an adjunct professor at WSU I taught classes about art and science and art and cultures. During the years I also was a supervising teacher for 8 different pre-service art education students from WSU. I’ve always been interested in silversmithing, jewelry, and enameling. After my retirement in 2007 I took some more enameling classes and started sharing my love of enameling with anyone interested.
2. Folded Up: Exploring Book Arts with Rachel Epp Buller
This workshop will explore a variety of small folded book forms - also known as art that can fit in your pocket. Methods to be demonstrated include: several accordion folds, triangle fold, flower fold, and accordion-fold-based books such as flag books, pop-ups, and Venetian blind books. Book covers will also be demonstrated, though they will not be required for all books. Supplies provided include book boards, bone folders, glue and brushes, papers for book pages, and a variety of decorative papers. Students are invited to bring their own decorative papers and recycled papers, stamps, paints, markers, and any other art and craft materials to adorn the books. Supply fee: $20
About Rachel Epp Buller: I am Associate Professor of Visual Arts and Design at Bethel College where I have the chance to hone both critical and creative practices in my favorite classes to teach: art history, printmaking, and book arts. I particularly love teaching book arts - a new class I introduced at Bethel two years ago - because it is a medium that bridges boundaries and students from many disciplines (art, design, literature, history, communication, and even biology!) have been able to excel and find ways to connect book arts to their own areas of interest. Much of my own recent work includes folded, cut, printed, and/or stitched papers.
3. Tea Bowls and Yunomi Cups: An exploration of function, aesthetics, and traditions, with David Long
This workshop will focus on the development of simple ceramic forms and how they relate to function,
beauty, and cultural traditions. We will begin by making tea bowls and yunomi cups, which are fairly
simple forms to make but are highly reflective of the tea ceremony in Eastern society. Participants will
also have the opportunity to explore how forms relate to function and their allied social expectations. I hope to encourage a dialog as to why we in the West favor cups with handles?
All supplies and most tools will be provided. If you have stamps or other tools to texture clay
surfaces—bring them. Some experience in ceramics is expected, however, mastery is not a requirement. No ceramic pieces will be fired during the workshop. Materials fee: no charge. Department has 17 potter’s wheels and several tables for hand building.
About David Long: I am a Professor of Visual Arts and Design at Bethel College where I have taught for the past fifteen years. I have an MFA in Ceramic Arts from WSU and am a diehard functional potter. My preference lies with porcelain and wood fired kilns.
