'I LOVE YOU TORONTO'
PRIVATE WORKSHOP & STUDIO VISIT
Jan & Jia, the adventurous duo behind 'I Love You Toronto', visited my studio and learned how to make their very own tiny Toronto flag book! We customized their books to become a book of their fave places across Toronto - a little folding, scoring, glue and gold leaf led to their very own amazing books!
This beautiful video is created by them! See more of their Toronto adventures on Instagram @iloveyouToronto
'THE CITY WITHIN'
WOMEN'S STUDIO WORKSHOP
'The City Within' is a limited edition bookwork completed at the Women's Studio Workshop. Using traditional printmaking methods including etching and screenprinting, Natalie Draz along with WSW interns and studio manager Chris Petrone created 65 handmade fold-out books.
