General Meeting 2020.02.04

General Meeting – February 04 2020

Jan Taylor, current president of the Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild, showed her work to appreciative members of LDWS last night at the February General Meeting. In advance, Jan described the subject of her talk:

As a long time lover of textiles and more recently a bookbinder and box maker. I look for ways to combine the materials I like best in an interesting way. What motivates me? Two questions: Why? and What if…?”

Her curiosity has led her through a wide range of creative adevntures. From her early, post-high school cross stitching (with a twist!) through felting experiments to her most recent fascination with hand-built books and boxes, she has explored colour, shape, function, and materials. Currently, she is exploring the use of gold in books, boxes, and other creations. We look forward to inviting her back to enjoy her golden phase!
