The EHSL Arts and Crafts Exhibit reception was held March 24, and the turnout was small but intimate. Some of my coworkers wanted to know how I made the stars so we had an impromptu hands-on workshop.
Some additional photos from the event, courtesy of Bryan Hull.
And I’m sad to report that there were no winners of the
Star Stuff Challenge. Better luck next time! If you’re looking for a tutorial, this one is pretty good:
Come by Kresge Library to pick up a card! I handset

Pictures from today’s Book Arts event! Thanks for coming out and printing a poster! Hope you enjoyed the experience. We had over 25 people stop by and some people made extra for their friends and colleagues.
Huge thanks to Sarah Smith for designing the background, hand setting the type for the question, and setting up everything to make the event such a success! I hand set
the pi symbol I designed on Wednesday afternoon for today’s printing. Can you spot my error?
I’m looking forward to our next Kresge x Book Arts event:

I’m going to work it into a poster in our Book Arts Workshop. Look out for a Halloween Book Arts event!
