Weekend Workshop Wrap-up

Visiting Artist Beata Wehr (center, in stripes) gets us started
 A group of 15 CBAS members were hard at work and having fun during our September 20 and 21 workshop with visiting artist Beata Wehr. Saturday and Sunday were full of challenges and creativity as we were led by Beata to explore the avenues we might use to arrive at CONTENT for our books. Writing prompts and a discussion of design principles got us started.

There was time to share, time to work independently and time for one-on-one consultation with the instructor; all fitted together to make it a rewarding experience. Though not all books were completed in two days, our concepts began to take physical forms that will result in great finished books in the near future.
CBAS thanks Judith Serling-Sturm for heading the Visiting Artist Committee and tending to all those details that meant smooth sailing for the rest of us. And CBAS is most grateful to Annie Bolling for use of a space for the workshop. Thanks to all CBAS board members who helped with set-up and clean-up and who kept us nourished with delicious snacks throughout. Your fellow CBAS members salute you!
