This past Saturday, the Polvino Family Art Center had a full house for the workshop taught by Susan Bradish. Participants from three counties gathered to learn the techniques of Japanese Pierced binding and each went home with a beautiful handmade book. If you are interested in getting information about this workshop when it is rescheduled, email CALJessamine@gmail.com.
In stead of stressing over coming up with the perfect blog entry, I have decide to just come out casual and candid. I have been making art all my life, formally for the last 15 years. As a teacher I am familiar and have worked through most mediums but have settled in fiber arts as my primary medium as an artist.
There are a few spots remaining for the all day book-binding workshop with Susan Bradish. Join Susan and learn the Japanese pierced binding technique and go home with a lovely book you have bound yourself. You may register at www.caljessamine.com or email CALJessamine@gmail.com.
