This afternoon was my second session teaching bookbinding at Atira Women's Resource Society down on Hastings. Today had quite a different vibe- 3 of the young ladies I spent the majority of time with are temporarily (for the last month) living in the downtown East side as volunteers with their university youth ministry. They have been living as a group in one of the shelters and spending time immersing and participating in the community. This is their summer break from the University of Manitoba. Pretty inspiring gals. Because we spent so much time together today I was able to give them some info I called the "advanced" lesson after they mastered the basics (just some ideas for zines and page layout and format changes). They were so excited about their results.
