The organizers have done a wonderful job of putting together classes and events to appeal to advanced book artists as well as beginning and intermediate practitioners. There are a variety of one- and two-day classes, and even a four-day workshop in hidden for-edge painting taught by Jeanne Bennett. Check it out!
