Where you'll be

We will first visit the landmarked (though inaccessible) cottage of master wood engraver Paul Landacre. On the mile and change hike out and back, we will enjoy shady staircase streets and sweeping vistas of the San Fernando Valley. For the second phase of the experience, we will do a printmaking project on my patio, shaded by ficus, bougainvillea, and bird of paradise trees.
