On Saturday, August 17, Maggie Gillikin and Leslie Winakur presented a class on making paste paper, inspired by Rosie Kelly’s books. Guild members not only created elegant, vibrantly colored paste papers, but had a great time doing it.
Our Annual Calligraphy Exchange took place on August 8 and was very well attended. We had plenty of time to visit and catch up toward the end of this long, hot summer. There was lots of eye candy, including some felted art by Brian Zampier and some hand made books by Deborah Hartigan, some lovely papers made by Bonnie Davis, and, of course, the great selection of supplies and papers brought by Herweck’s, thanks to Dina and An. Several Secret Pal gifts were delivered. Laura Herold brought her button maker and everyone who wanted to had an opportunity to make a button of their own – great hands on fun! Memberships were renewed (that’s a hint to anyone who has not yet done so). The Amity Parks workshop filled up (but there is a waiting list if you are still interested). And a wonderful time was had by all!
