I have been honored to work with a wonderful group of “older adults” at the Craft Contemporary Museum in Los Angeles, offering a series of workshops teaching bookmaking techniques, and providing a forum for creativity, imagination, sharing and story.
The series, “Crafting Our Stories By Hand” has had to be postponed due covid19.
Therefore, I have started an email newsletter to keep our community going, offering tips, images and sharing the work these makers are doing at home while “sheltering in place”.
Sharing these newsletters as a blog post makes their contents available for any and all. It inspiring to see what these makers have done and are doing during these crazy times.
I am happy to bring you images, tips, inspiration and learning for your bookmaking journey.
I hope you are all well, staying safe, and creating!

Well that is it for this week dear Craft Contemporary Bookmakers!
