At the January Mini Workshop, Guild Members created over 137 handmade Valentines for the Battered Womens Shelter! Fun was had all around as members got the chance to try several different styles of creating these beautiful, heartfelt pieces of art!
At our October Mini, Natalie Fowler walked us through how to make some amazing cards using Alcohol Ink! Each member was able to experiment with multiple mediums and techniques.

Images are from the May 2019 Mini workshop with Joan Schmitz. She taught us all Rotunda, a Calligraphic Hand.
Beth was our excellent instructor. Here, she shows one of the three ways the book can be opened and displayed. Student covered the equilateral triangle book covers with their decorative paper. We found out that 3-cornered covers are harder than 4-cornered book covers! Everyone did a great job covering their triangle books. Students had to fold a long strip of paper very carefully, for it to fit in the triangle covers. With proper folding technique, the book can be opened 3 different ways, which Beth was able to demonstrate for everyone!
Below are some pictures from the mini and some examples of the students’ work!
