Yup, gail and John Cox no longer run their school in GA, nor does Stan Warsaw run his U.S. School of Professional Paperhanging in Rutland VT. I do believe one can either buy from Gail or find on the market, their tapes that they now hawk. Supposedly one can learn how to hang paper at home with VCR tapes - - hey if Richard Simmons can make a bundle doing it, then why not back woods Georgian paperhangers
There are, however, many trade schools teaching rudimentary wallcovering skills. In Media PA is the Williamsson Free School of Technical Trades
. Although I have direct experience with it, I have been there for a workshop and know people connected to it. From what little I have seen, it looks good.
Also, in VT is Brad Bender's Wallpaper Academy which offers two one week classes a year. Brad is a former teacher of the old U.S. School of Professional Paperhanging.
