Business Name: Conduit Press
Location: Bloomington, IN
What do you make? handmade & vintage books, albums and cards
How did you learn your art/craft? I've been making various sorts and types of photo albums and scrapbooks since I was a wee one, but not until my senior year in college did I learn the true art that was bookbinding. In a class taught at the Collins LLC on "Creating Artist's Books" by Yara Cluver I learned how to use archival materials to create beautiful long-lasting books using a variety of sewing techniques and papers.
Your five favorite things: Griffin (my baby) & my family of course. Ice cream. Watermelon. BOOKS!
