Bookmaking Workshop

I spent Saturday morning with a women's church retreat group on Cape Cod. We started with a little bit of conversation about the creativity we all have and a short reading from Art Lessons: Reflections From An Artist's Life about time and patience. I taught the simple Hot Dog Booklet and showed some variations. We used recycled paper for the books and paper from the collage box. I also had some sheets of quotes and words. It was wonderful to feel the energy in the room and see the results. Inspiration came from many places—children, flowers and gardens (we are all feeling a hunger for spring), a basket in the rest room, and the quotes and words. It is always a privilege to be part of the creative process. Thanks to Gail for taking these pictures with her phone.
