Art Unraveled

"It's in the Bag" book inked

"It's in the bag" book left raw

Art Unraveled is coming up in just a few months! I can't believe it! I have to start hammering out proposals for 2012 this summer already! Holy Moly!

This year, at AU, I will be teaching my book binding classed called "It's in the Bag". The cover of the book is created with plastic grocery bags! It's a great recycling project and makes for a sturdy, very lightweight cover for a hand bound journal. The technique for creating the cover also opens up a lot of possibilities for other projects. My mind starts whirling with ideas when I am working on these books! The class does require a sewing machine but has a very small supply list. I was just offered the use of 5 sewing machines for this class for students traveling from out of state!!!!!! So, if you have considered the class but held back because of the issue of traveling with a sewing machine, now there are a handful available for use in class! Please contact me (princessburninghair (at) cox (dot) net) if you need a machine and have signed up for the class so I can reserve one for you.
