I had my first bookbinding/bookart making workshop this year at East West Gallery today. I went early to do the set up and waited, since it was on koha (donation) basis, I didn't know who (or anyone) would turn up for the day. So I brought along a book for binding, not into my second signature, I had my first participant, a lovely lady curious and wanted to give it a try.
Then this wonderful family of all ages came to make books and we all had a fun time.
I was impressed by this young man who was really good at decorating and sticking art on the book cover and sewing with needle too, with a little help from grandmother and myself of course.
It was a fun day at the gallery. Makes me happy that they enjoyed the workshop.
Yesterday we had a unplanned road trip, just because. We took a long drive to Coromandel and back. The scenery was as I always tell my friends "ridiculously beautiful!"
It was a nice change and a good little break.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Have a good week ahead!
