Describe your approach to teaching:
My approach to teaching. I am passionate about bookbinding and I always try to convey some of that excitement and enthusiasm to my students, and also to teach them good working practices.

I love the materials used in bookbinding. Responding to the text of a book, I use the materials to create a sensitive , abstract expression of the narrative content.
