NEW 2018 WORKSHOP SCHEDULE
SDBA is adding new workshops for 2018 on an ongoing basis, so the class listings will be updating regularly. Currently there is a 3-day workshop by Cherryl Moote in February focusing on folded book structures and Cathedral of Stories by Jill Berry in March, as well as Anne Covell's classes January 27 and 28. We've also added 3 extraordinary one-day marbling workshops by Pietro Accardi. Check our Workshop page often to see what's new at San Diego Book Arts.
EARLY ENROLLMENT DEADLINE
January 22, 2018 is the last day for SDBA members to enjoy a 20 percent savings with early enrollment in Jill Berry's Cathedral of Stories workshop, which is scheduled for March 23-25, 2018. Visit the Workshop page for class details. Early enrollment is available only to members whose dues are current.
NEXT MONTHLY MEETINGS WILL FEATURE BOOK BINDING
The January and February monthly meetings, at Pacific Beach Library and Cardiff Library respectively, will provide instruction by SDBA artists on book making techniques especially suited for binding single sheets. Gretchen Hiegel will lead the program on Wednesday, January 17, and Gina Pisello will be the instructor on Thursday, February 8. Visit the Public Events page for details.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT . . .
On November 16 Gretchen Hiegel and Lydia Velarde taught a group of kindergartners at Innovations Academy in Scripps Ranch, how to make an accordion fold book.
In Ginger Burrell's December workshops participants made 25 books in three days!
The quarterly potluck November 19 at Mission Valley Library gave SDBA members an opportunity to relax, visit, share books, and make some decisions about the Collaborative Art Project. Volunteer appreciation was also high on the agenda with a hats off to the Board of Directors and a special thank you to committee chairs. More photos on the Member Events page and the About page.
