In March I participated in the local Glenfarg Art Show which was a two day event showcasing the work of a surprisingly high number of very talented artists in many disciplines given the small size of our community. It was a super weekend with lots to see and buy and the refreshments were all provided by our local expert bakers. There was a very busy table for little ones to paint and draw and then learn how to make folded books from their efforts. Noisy, fun and messy!
I've run a few happy and successful workshops with all participants feeding back saying they've had a good time, learnt loads and had lots of fun. Just how I like it to be.
Two of the workshops were the 'Introduction to Book Making', where the mornings were spent painting, printing, stamping and texturing various papers. After lunch and drying time these were made into folded, stitched and glued books, each participant was able to take home 6 to 8 finished books.
