On the bench

A lot has been going on here in  my studio and there is a lot more to come, or so my calendar tells me…

To begin, I have a new tenant in my studio. !!! If you were wondering, “Is that a 01 Challenge Press?” you would be correct. Through the generosity of a close friend and that of a new acquaintance, I am the proud owner of this little machine that I am sure promises to be a great addition to my bindery arsenal. I can’t wait to get it rolling.

I have several exhibit submissions in the works right now, and it is probably the first time I have been working on three submissions simultaneously. Below are images that give a hint at the entries which will be posted here when complete.

With all of that exciting work going on, I have an exciting trip to go with it! Last year at the Guild of Book Workers Standards of Excellence, my husband bid on and won a two day workshop with the great guys at Pergamena! It promises to be amazing and, I am sure gross, but I am looking forward to both!

Also, I will be teaching two box making workshops at Hook Pottery Paper in LaPorte, Indiana, October 5-6. More details will be posted soon!
