These freshly roasted beans have been produced by Kev Murrow from Patea. While Michaela returned 14 borrowed prints from an exhibition in Eltham, Kev showed me some of the techniques on my stove top to brew a great cup of coffee. I can smell it now!

The first stage in the bookbinding process is to fold your paper. We used Eden Grove,white, 90 gsm, A2 sheet. It was very nice to work with and had a laid pattern and a watermark.
Michaela Stoneman had worked very hard to organise this successful workshop in conjunction with an 'Impressions' a fine exhibition of contemporary printmaking.
I was impressed with the enthusiasm and skill of the 9 participants.
