The Friends of Dard Hunter is a national non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the practice of hand papermaking, allied paper arts, the book arts, and other arts practiced by Dard Hunter (1883-1966).

Demonstrations would be given on Friday, October 24th or Saturday, October 25th, and should be 30-45 minutes in length.

In your proposal, please complete the information below, providing a description of your presentation (50–150 words), specify the maximum number of observers and whether you would conduct the demonstration multiple times. Please include a brief biographical statement (two sentences maximum) and a resume. We encourage you to submit your proposal via e-mail to Jill Littlewood at The deadline is May 1, 2008, 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time. You may also submit your material via regular mail that should be received by the deadline. If desired, mailed materials will be returned in a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) that you provide.

The 2008 venue will require that demonstrations have little equipment needs, with little or no water (i.e. dry demonstrations).

The members of the selection committee are the Executive Committee/Board of Directors (ECBOD) of the Friends of Dard Hunter (Jeffrey Barr, Amanda Degener, Betsy Dollar, Peter Hopkins, Rudy Kovacs, and Jill Littlewood), and our Hawaii site host, Marilyn Wold.
