2015 December Meeting – Making Our Own Artist/Note Book

Suki White gave us a brilliant workshop at our December meeting showing up the various different Artists’ Books that she’s bought and made, and then gave us a demonstration on how to make our own. Cue the Blue Peter bit of lots of Pritt Sticks, cut out magazine photos, plain white paper … and a lot of imagination!
