I love being a student! workshop with Bhavna Mehta

VIDEO of the book I made

I was privileged to take a one day workshop with Bhavna Mehta recently. She lives in San Diego, but does teach around the US sometimes. She's a gifted paper cutter and fine and creative artist. Not to mention, a first class human. (Do look at her website)
Bhavna's book
The workshop was from 10-3 and limited to six people. We each cut and then exchanged pages and then created our own copy of a collaborative book.

Student pages before they were assembled.
It's simple amazing what one can do with just an x-acto knife and paper!
