I recommend taking any paper (tactile or visual textures) that you might enjoy to use in the copy machine or for printing.
If you have access to a polaroid camera bring it, with plenty of film.
While I will supply some text for the projects/experiments, I also
encourage everyone to take text and images that you are interested in
using in the projects. These may be found or written by you.
1) One piece of text about the length of a poetic stanza, short hiaku,
or 5-10 word statement that you find provocative or compelling.
2) A text that is longer (one to two paragraphs)
3) A chapter of text that may be edited.
Also bring any source imagery that relates or contrasts the texts. These
may or may not be used depending on the project parameters and can be altered or redrawn depending.

NOTE ABOUT MATERIALS: We will be making our PBI models with pine boards and covering them with chamois in order to save time and to spare the PBI budget. However,
if you are interested in purchasing some quarter sawn oak boards (about $6.00 per pair) and alum-tawed goatskin (about $25.00 per square foot) to make another model on your
own with authentic materials, let Maria know by email; if there is enough interest she will try to bring some along for folks to buy. (No commitment at this point, just let me know
if you’re interested)

Shoes, boots or sandals that can get wet.

20-22 gauge steel wire, at least one pkg. (optional)
Long-nose pliers with side cutters (optional)

If there are small tools, drawing, painting or bookmaking supplies cutting pads, etc., that you always end up using to make your work, you might want to bring these.

Optional (this is a brainstorm list for those of you who are driving and
want to fill up your cars with stuff):

Images, hard copy and discs (mac), for use in collaboration with Print and Photo, and depending on access to computer equipment, for transfer onto wet, handmade paper. You might want to bring some fairly high contrast inkjet prints (print on cheap paper – the ink won't release from good inkjet paper) for transfer onto handmade paper. The transfers aren't lightfast, but I'm hoping to do some experiments with the new lightfast, lysonic inks.
A couple old towels for drying hands
Pruning shears
Dremel tool portable drill with drill bits
Tape measure
Package T-pins
Netting and lace, (black plastic netting called 'bird block' is cheap), scraps of screen.
Hot glue (the yellow sticks for using on wood seem to work the best for armatures)
a variety of cotton, jute, or linen string, twine, or yarn, waxed or unwaxed (for constructing, sewing and even mixing into pulp)
If you have other wire cutters, blunt-nose pliers, metal cutting shears, spring clamps, vise grips, etc., they will probably be useful.
Alligator clips from Radio Shack are very handy.
1 dozen plastic grocery bags (for storing strained pulp and covering wet work)
Quart and pint plastic containers (i.e. cottage cheese and yogurt containers – don't buy these: bring some if you happen to save them) good for storing paste, formation aid, small amounts of pulp, etc.
Acrylic paints
Spray bottle (plant sprayer or empty pump spray bottles)
Found objects/fragments/images to use with handmade paper
