ATC - January 2019 International Group 02

ATC - January 2019 International Group 02
The series continues even if it is out of order.  I guess I was jet-lagged yesterday.  I really like how this series came together.  Sometimes the stars and planets align and all components seem to work well together.

I will start adding art videos next week probably.  I am taking a break from that aspect of the blog.  I was really blotto yesterday.  Jet-lag seems to be worse going west and I was totally out of it all day.  I could not seem to light on any one thing to occupy my time.  I felt like a butterfly flitting about.

The book arts workshop that I took in the Shetland Islands was fantastic.  We made eight differnet sample books with eight different binding stitches.  We then recreated each with a more substantial cover.  Within each of the eight books we had different tasks.  I will share the books in the near future.

This coming weekend I am off to Newport, OR to teach at the Newport Paper and Book Arts Festival.  It is always a good time.
