On March 1st, I participated in a bookmark/card making workshop led by artist Elizabeth McKee. Beth has created a book called FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE that uses the poetry of Stephen Lewis, Robyn Sarah and James Oppenheim to help illuminate the continuing struggle for women's liberation around the world.
Elizabeth's book are stunningly beautiful and meticulously crafted. Each woman in the book is individually dressed and believe me, after making two of the women myself, I know how many hours Beth has put into this project!
You can check out the book at http://forimmediaterelease.moonfruit.com/ and you can also host or attend a workshop with Beth anywhere in the country.
It really is a community building/art/fun way to give back to your local charity and also, to be inspired to continue working and to FINISH your own projects.
