    Wonderful and intense time with Creative Arts Community

    The entire camp burned making art. Fortunately, we had cool waters to smooth and rejuvente us. Tangerine sunsets were a gift of the smoke and heat.

    I'm grateful to have met so many wonderful and creative folks while teaching book arts for CAC at Menucha. Terrific students, fantastic staff and amazing instructors/artists, all and all a very inspiring week.

    Shout out to FOBA conference and Elissa Campbell.

    At the conference, I went to an intensive binding workshop taught be Elissa. She covered nine of Keith Smith's sewn bindings.

    Techniques I learned will be shared during a weeklong book arts workshop at Menucha in the spectacular Columbia Gorge this summer.
