Go wild making your own gift-wrapping for any occasion; make snazzy dust-jackets or (note)book covers; even “make” scraps for cards and/or bookmarks. We’ll use a variety of large-size papers and different techniques such as Suminagashi marbling, color-blending washes, dip ‘n fold, creative stamping, and more. Each student will finish up with a generous supply of their original decorative design papers for using in a dozen special ways all year long.
Susan M. Callan has been a devotee of Book Arts for over 25 years. In the mid 2000’s, she was invited to join a 12-artist team, each teaching their own discipline under the auspices of The Creativity Center. In that Center’s 5-year run here on Bainbridge, she discovered the genuine joy of sharing her Book Arts knowledge and skills with enthusiastic students. She’s been teaching (and, of course, still learning) all aspects of Book Arts and creativity ever since. Since 2017, she has taught BOOK ARTS; THE CREATIVITY FACTOR at the national Focus On Book Arts conference in Forest Grove, Oregon, in addition to several other venues closer to home..
