Book art camp@The Mermaid Studio

The first week of bookbinding art camp wraps up today and I am completely blown away at the joy & fearless creativity of these kids!

 

While their variations on stab binding are untraditional, they’ve mastered the pamphlet stitch (or “find the kitten” stitch) and are *glowing* when they fill an entire book with their own artwork.

Each day is more draining than a 3 hour butt-kicking w/MFC but oddly inspirational, too. Jumping off into new directions…
