Summer Workshops on Cape Cod

I'm very excited to be teaching at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill on Cape Cod this summer. I'll be giving 2 workshops, each for 2 mornings. Here's the information:

June 30, July 1, 9 am-12 noon
$170. ($320 for both classes)

Enjoy bookmaking at its most friendly and accessible—no rulers or precious papers, no designing or planning ahead. The emphasis is on freedom and possibility—how the simplest forms can be adapted, varied, and combined to unlock our creative juices. Using cereal boxes and grocery bags, buttons, and sticks, we'll make intimate books that fold and fan, hang and stand.

July 2-3, 9 am-12 noon
$170. ($320 for both classes)

"Gratitude is a kind of seeing, an awareness of the magnitude of the gift of this earth."
Kathleen Dean Moore

Connect with your creativity and the spirit of nature in this hands-on workshop based on Susan's Spirit Book Series of sculptural handmade books. After an introduction to the Spirit Books and a walk to gather materials, you will make a simple handmade book and add texture, imagery, and pattern. There will be an array of materials to work with and gentle guidance from Susan whose twenty-five years of teaching bookmaking to children have made her a clear and patient instructor. No art experience or creative confidence is needed; this workshop is truly for everyone.

Both workshops are appropriate for all levels but may be of particular interest to those with little or no bookmaking experience. For those with experience, the workshops offer a chance to let go and play.

If you have any questions about the workshops, please leave a comment or email me.

If you would like information about the center or would like to register, go to the Truro Center for the Arts website.
