Hedi Kyle book structure

I just love it when my students create these flag books - this one uses an image of sardines taken by her son. This image was then manipulated in Photoshop.

Just back from Fresno California

Wow - had a great time in Fresno. A return to my paper making roots. It was at Fresno City College that I first became amazed by the possibilities of hand papermaking as a process and art form!!!
Now here I was, giving a lecture, 20 years later, about my arts journey that started in Kathy Wosika's class......

So ...... I talked about my papermaking/teaching in Minnesota (I left Fresno in 1999) and what led to my decision to apply to Camberwell College of the Arts, London's to study for my MA in Visual Arts/Book Arts.
Then I showed them my work done during the MA program - followed by what I'm working on at present.
The following day I taught a workshop - 'Cut, Fold, Sew & Glue'
Using several different techniques they produced some amazing work.
