Storyteller Lorraine Hartin-Gelardi magically wove the story of a woman's loss and quest into an enchanted world of rocks and caves, fairies and feather capes. (www.Lorrainetells.com)
As Lorraine told this journey tale from Scotland, workshop participants engaged expressive gestural drawing techniques to create images for their books.
A double accordion book format allowed for many variations and innovations in the visual retelling of the story. Each book reflected story elements of particular resonance for its maker. Each book offered a unique and intriguing world to explore. What delight it was to hear Lorraine tell this vivid tale and to watch so many expressive beautiful books come to life.
Thanks to all for the pleasure of your company and the flat out fun of making art in community!
THURSDAY workshop books in progress.
The Thursday evening group meets in the historic school house at Pleasant Plains Presbyterian Church, a building that in its span has accommodated students, fire engines, refugees, church committees and now, most happily for us, book makers! Many thanks to the church for making its facilities available to the community.
SATURDAY workshop books in progress.
