In the third class, we used tools such as soda can pens and ruling pens to make large free-form strokes on half sheets of Arches text wove. (By now, each of us had chosen a specific theme or quotations to be used throughout the classes.) Teri included lots of demonstrations and lessons on layout as we went along. One of her points was to explain a simplified concept of the "Golden Rectangle". This was really helpful in figuring out the design of our books.
