Book arts workshop at Squid

Yesterday a group of us spent the day joyfully playing with paper and making artists’ books at Squid Studio in Nowra. The wet wintery weather and the creative atmosphere at Squid Studio (with fabulous art all around us) provided the perfect setting for making books.

I’m planning to run another workshop next month focusing on decorating papers for books and covers. We will use mixed media techniques such as wax resist, stamps, stencils and pastes to make original and colourful papers.

Photographer extraordinaire Lea Hawkins was with us for the day and she took this photograph of some happy book artists. She also sent the photographs below. Thanks Lea.

    Looks wonderful! I hope I can make it to one of your workshops soon. It would be lovely if you could display the books made at the workshop in a bookshop with some promo for your next workshop.
