A day in the SECASA hand-made book project

May 21 2016

some photos from the last few weeks.

April 2016

We are all enjoying designing and printing pages for a community book.

The idea for this project came from a workshop I did last year with book and paper maker, Barb Adams.  Every participant will make one print  from their lino-cut for each woman in the group  so we will each have a collection of one print from everyone.   We will then bind our set into a concertina book.  At the end of the project everyone have a beautiful hand-made book containing a set of prints as a memento.   I am sure we will make one for SECASA too.

There is a lovely spirit of sharing in this project – and one that this group of women have embraced.

Nature is a much-loved theme.   Leoni tries different backgrounds and colours to create mood inner tree prints.  Participants in the group are encouraged to experiment with new approaches to their creativity.
