Delicious snacks were also provided while the creative talent was at rest.

Erica's passion for creativity as well as her history studying the fine-arts at university shone through her workshop. Her lesson plan  was clear, detailed, and thoroughly enjoyable. She made learning the pamphlet stitch technique as well as folding two different cover styles (simple and envelope) approachable, and manageable.

Participants of the workshop were able to walk away not only having been able to bind two of their own journals, but also with newfound knowledge on the different materials needed to continue this art on their own.

The only downside to bookbinding, is the hesitancy that accompanies it to mark the beautiful journals up.
Thank you Erica for a wonderful evening of laughs and inspiration.
