Teaching in Beautiful Spaces

Raise your hands if you’ve ever found yourself in a beautiful space that made you just stop and take it all in.  Bonus points if you looked up and noticed an equally beautiful ceiling.

If you haven’t yet been to Gotamago’s Studio Shop, I highly recommend it!  It’s a space they renovated themselves, and it’s as stunning as Lichia’s paintings and illustrated goods.  It’s also where I’ll be teaching the next Sampler Bookbinding class, on June 9.  I’d love to see you there!
