workshopping in Göteborg

Leaving Sigtuna with a promise of spring. We haven't had much of a winter this year anyway. I'm off to hold a one-day workshop in bookbinding in Gothenburg.

Staying with good friends on Hisingen. I woke up early Monday morning, discovering a thick layer of snow covering the ground. Great timing, Winter!

I made it in time to the workshop, straining with my heavy luggage containing all the bookbinding material for the workshop.

Glueing and sewing away! 21 students, three binding techniques and a folder, was the result of the day. You can see the School of Design and Crafts at Göteborg university here:
