I’ll be teaching at ……..

5-7 October 2019
Korowal School, Hazelbrook,
Blue Mountains, NSW

CLICK HERE to visit the website of this brand new creative retreat, check out the various workshops (designed for adults 18+) and make a booking.

I’m thrilled to have been asked to teach a 3 day course in the beautiful surroundings of the Blue Mountains and I’m looking forward to meeting a heap of talented, enthusiastic, creative people, all wanting to extend their skills – or learn something new.

The title of my course is Collage, Cover, Create, Bind: Artists Books Revealed, and that alone should give you an idea of what we’ll be doing.  But in case you’re new to book making here are a few photos to whet your appetite.

And if you want to know more, listen to my podcast where I’m interviewed by the organizer, Sam Tannous, and we discuss just what participants can expect.

At a recent exhibition, where I showed my stitched reduction lino-print/chine collé book (shown above, top right), it was snapped up by a local dignitary and subsequently shipped off to Scotland as a gift for a sick relative.  So glad it’s gone to a good home.

Needless to say, I have a replacement underway.  Same kind of binding but a totally different theme and colour scheme.  Not finished yet but well underway.  And why isn’t it finished?  Well I got sidetracked with another book idea that was rattling around in my head and just demanding to be made.  Finished it last night.

Stitched concertina book, collage & drawing, partial spine, handmade cord and button fastening, postcards inserted as pages.

It’s all about having a bit of creative fun.

About Claire B

I'm a passionate printmaker, paper-maker and a poor sketcher (which I'm working to improve). I've stitched from early childhood and am a perpetual student, loving learning and participating in everything creative.
