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.
- Wondrous new works by VICKI!
- Wondrous new works by SANDRA!
- A link to my blog post about an incredible exhibition of Flag Books created by teens!
One of those systems of opposites we talked about, and I suggested you use a =s a creative prompt for your bookmaking, content, visuals and writing!
Well that is it for this week dear Craft Contemporary Bookmakers!
If you are able, and so inclined, email us all back and share something book-related, or anything of interest you wish.
Stay safe, stay strong, stay well
In peace and hope and truth and beauty,
