Cortona, Italy Workshop June 19-26, 2010

The Open Book and the Moving Pen
Join us for a week long workshop during which my husband, Al and I will take you on an inspirational journey for your creative spirit. You will be surrounded by the beauty of Cortona, Italy, where you will spend the mornings learning how to make a variety of journals and the afternoons writing poetry based on five poetic forms. Midweek we will take a train trip to Fabriano, the paper-making center of Italy and tour the Fabriano paper-making facility. By the end of the week you will have made several elegant book structures with beautiful covers. You will make a limited-edition book containing your and your classmates' poems and have a poetry reading at our sumptuous fare-well dinner on Friday night. I took an art class in Cortona in October, 2008. It was truly an experience of a lifetime. What a lovely combination of art, delicious food and wine, music and delightful people and surroundings. Tuscany awaits you! There may be a $150 discount coming your way. I will get back to you about that.
