The Friends of the Art Library (F.O.A.L.)at the Durango Arts Center recently brought Laura Wait of Steamboat Springs to Durango to teach a two day workshop on a variety of sewn book bindings. I used the opportunity to bind my journal that I began during my trip to Kauai last month. Very old tapa cloth was used for the cover and the binding was sewn on leather straps. The journal includes watercolors, drawings, photographs, and written text.
