workshop two

Afternoon tea at the Windsor for Auntie's 90th birthday, I was meant to take my mum but she wasn't up to it so I got to play ladies!

My book class had the last session on Saturday and we made two needle coptics, here is my example.
The previous week we made flag books from postcards and again here is my example.
I used a couple of Alisa Golden's book for the instructions and for inspirational examples.
The participants made some great looking flag books especially from the IAMPA cards. They are quite keen for me to go back and teach Papermaking and another book class.
I have been making a few photo albums lately with 300 gsm Hahnemuhle, here are a few pics of my newest books.

And this is a miniature book work in progress for the Valda Quick Paper Arts Biennial which is to be held at Bundoora Homestead in November.
Lastly, in preparation for a workshop with Glen Skien the weekend after next I went around the garden taking a few photos and found these fungi.

Wow. What a heap of interesting stuff. Lovely Japanese bindings - fun flag books. Looking forward to seeing what you do with Glen Skien. I was lucky enough to be invited back to Meadowbank College to do a workshop with him there & we made a box. He does such interesting stuff and I like the way he's so relaxed about things.

Hi Wendy,
nice to catch up with you on Friday evening, it was a great show. I'll definitely post something, we aren't making boxes this time because he did a box workshop for us a couple of years ago. I instigated getting him down here that time and didn't get to do the workshop so I made sure I booked in early this time.

I haven't been by for awhile and had lots of wonderful things to look through. Your workmanship is awesome. Flag books are always fun and even though you know what will happen when the book opens, it always seems to still be a surprise!
