I am so excited that I will be teaching at CREATE New Jersey this summer. If you are looking for something to do in July, check this out!
On Wednesday July 18 I will be teaching a lettering class during the day. Here are some photos:
In the evening on Wednesday I will be teaching "Tiny Beaded Book." It's a small book with a coptic binding with beads.
In October I learned a new book structure (new to me). It was a book constructed with folded envelopes. Cutting the ends off each envelope created side pockets that are great for holding tags and other inserts. I fell in love with this concept and have been experimenting with it since then. This book combines that idea with experimental gilding techniques. Here are a few photos:
