Join me at Asheville BookWorks

I am thrilled to say I will be leading two printmaking workshops at Asheville BookWorks in October and November 2014.

You should join!

Located in Asheville, North Carolina - the mountain town like no other - Asheville BookWorks is an incubator for creative breakthrough, fundamentally focused on the artists' books and print arts. From their shop in vibrant West Asheville, they provide major contributions to the community with top shelf gallery exhibitions, happenings, workshops, and studio rental memberships. With approximately 3500 sq. ft. of studio space, they maintain a truly excellent facility with a large variety of equipment for Letterpress, Bindery, and Printmaking.  

Asheville BookWorks also supports established and emerging artists (like me) by providing essential opportunities to teach, exchange skills, and share knowledge within a broad network of artists and makers. A beautiful space filled with inspiring people, I am so excited to be a part of it all. 


First up, plan to spend a long weekend in Asheville and join my three day course on Collagraphs in early October.  For an added bonus, note that this workshop will likely coincide with prime Appalachian fall foliage.
