For the final days of December I’m going to stay on this “roll” of posting every day and turn your attention to some of the wonderful guest teachers we’ve had in the studio as well as directing you to some of the talent we have coming up in 2017.  It was a big year for us as far as guest teachers go.  We had 15 visiting artists!  How convenient it is that we have 15 days left in 2016 to spend a day looking back at each visit.

Day 1 we look back to February 9 and 10 with Leslie Marsh.

Leslie is a talented photographer and book maker from Pennsylvania.

We enjoyed eco-dying and creating mini soldered books and wearable book pendants with her in February.

This is a photo from her recent post on Facebook…this is similar to what the inside pages of our books looked like.

This is similar to what the outside of our books looked like

and the sweet little wearable book looked something like this

although ours were a bit larger…I believe Leslie says this image is one of the tiniest books she’s made.

Check out what Leslie has going on in 2017 here.  Follow her on Facebook here.

I was inspired by her class to develop this workshop for those interested in learning the Coptic binding technique.

It is currently scheduled on Sunday, January 15th from 2-5pm.
