Focus on Book Arts 2011

First, let me explain that there are very few photos of our experiences at Focus on Book Arts 2011 because we were all so busy during the four days of workshops that we had little time to take out our cameras! Five local NORBAG members and eleven (yes, eleven!) out-of-town members converged on Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon for workshops by some of the most creative book artists working today. The photos below represent the work of four of our local members.

 Our evenings will filled with book exhibits and lectures but we did manage time to have breakfast together, thanks to Becky Leuning, our member from Portland. Becky brought oatmeal from home, and the rest of us brought assorted food items.
