Announcing Book Arts Classes offered at Florence Thomas Art School, in Glendale Springs, NC (just off the Blue Ridge Parkway).
Sharon Sharp (Sharp Handmade Books: sharphandmadebooks.com) will be teaching two book making classes among more than 40 others being offered between May and October in painting, drawing, writing, fine crafts, and photography. On August 24-26, she'll be teaching an introduction to bookmaking, "Entering the Art of Bookmaking," in which everyone will make eight books of different types. On September 12, she'll offer "Haiku and Edge-Sewn Books," in which class members will write haiku and make books for their writing. These classes, like most of the others, will have a limit of twelve people. Details about all of the upcoming classes are available at www.florenceartschool.org
On-site lodging and some meals are available to registrants, and the 10.3-acre campus offers a delightful place for creative exploration. As noted on the Florence website, "the campus itself, spread open to the south and the sun, is in a beautiful setting—a large pond, meadows, many trees, gentle hills, a wonderful view into the distance."
