CMA group, June 2017

I just finished teaching a week-long gum bichromate workshop up in beautiful Western North Carolina, at Cullowhee Mountain Arts, in Cullowhee NC.  We had a wonderful time, using the outstanding print-making facilities on Western Carolina's campus. They made some really outstanding images.  Here there are, holding one of their favorites.  I had a great fun group, and I hope to teach there again next year-- same time, same place!
