    Hey Collette,

    I stopped in to the Pleee Island Art Works Saturday during your Paper making workshop. I have some stained glass and hand made soap at the Art Works stopped in to see if Suzanne needed anything. Sorry to have interrupted your work shop. I even made one of the photos. The paper making looked interesting. I was tight for time on Saturday but would have liked to see more. Will you be offering any other work shops? Thanks.

  2. Hi Collette,

    thank you so much for coming out to the island to give the workshop. It was very informative and much easier than I had thought it would be. I hope you can come back to give another on printmaking before the season finishes. Great photos!
