Early in Summer 2010, L. Graykin sighed in relief as he beat the 95 degree heat with an air-conditioned car trip to Peterborough. There he spent a couple of hours with Erin Sweeney in her studio, insisting that her AC stay on...in spite of the effect it would have on this production's audio. So forgive the hiss, knowing that it was for the sake of comfort.
Erin talked at length about her art--bookmaking, sculpting, printing, and textile arts--her history, and much more. Herein you can see a demonstration of how she makes her art books, learn about the tools she uses, and find out how you can take a workshop with her.
