I am so thrilled to be offering this book arts workshop at my house in San Diego. I have been making books and altering books for as long as I can remember. In the class offered on the 18th we will explore the theme of home, coming home, what home means for each of us and how an authentic creative life is the essence of building a strong personal foundation. 
We will be focusing on building this "house" from the ground up - there is no need to have any previous bookmaking experience or art background. We will use many different types of mark making materials and ephemera to "furnish" our house.
You will come away with a collection of pages proclaiming your creative life as a personal "home" you can built upon, and add to over time.
I will supply the paper for the book and the cardboard cover templates. I have room for 10 students and you can pay via paypal to my eamail address above, or on the 18th. But please let me know if you wish to reserve a space.  Looking forward to seeing you, and creating together.
