Lauren Emeritz: Water and Earth Books

Join us on Thursday, April 18 at 6 pm CST/7 pm EST for the next BAS presenter, Lauren Emeritz!

In this virtual presentation, Lauren will discuss creating her Water and Earth books. In each of these nature-themed books, Lauren learned a new skill and used it to communicate the book's theme visually. This talk will be about Lauren's process of learning, and creating books, and techniques, including paper-making and cyanotypes.
