November Workshop Report

About twenty members gathered today to make these calendars. Thanks Dolores for a well organized and fun workshop and a special thank you to Suzanne Stalder-Mansure, one of our out-of-town members, who sent this project to us. For those members who could not attend and would like the instructions, Dolores will be happy to send you the pdf file containing the layout of months and instructions. Just send her an email.

The following photos show the construction of the calendars in some sort of chronological order. Every book artist has picked the images for their calendar.
The calendar pages were provided but had to be cut to size.
Members had a choice of making a book with or without a cover.
Images were glued on for each month.
Several member used photo editing software to create their images.
Coordinated papers were selected for the months and cover.
Let the gluing begin. Burnishing the image with a bone folder.
Auditioning the photographs before gluing.
Other members used their granddaughter's art for the images.
