Your blogger sure had fun the last couple of days taking a mini-mono workshop at Tiger Lily Press with Press Director (and CBAS friend) Theresa Kuhr. Class size was limited to 3 so we could each have our own press. I got the medium-sized Charles Brand. Doesn't he look strong and willing to help even an amateur?
Theresa gave us a good demo of what to do and then turned us loose with stencils, paper and primary ink colors to be as creative as possible...or, at least, to learn how to use the tools. Here's Jessica inking.
Theresa had put up some minis she produced during the last session to encourage us.
She was so helpful, especially to those of us with no printing experience (me). Here she is checking to see what Sharon is working on.
The bonds between CBAS and Tiger Lily Press are strong. If you haven't already taken a class there, do consider it. Might provide inspiration for those artists' books you are going to produce in the future—maybe a nice portfolio of your prints or a story with your own illustrations. Check out Tiger Lily's blog for more information on the variety of upcoming classes: www.tigerlilypress.blogspot.com

CBAS members: Have you taken a workshop/class we should know about? Contact your blogger and share the details.
