We will be exploring the craft of altered books as a starting point for creative expression. We’ll learn different artistic techniques for creating altered books, and have plenty of time to experiment with the students’ own ideas for personal artwork in an altered book/journal.
The book can be a personal journal, an art project or a resource for experimental techniques. Bring your best ideas and all your creativity. Books for altering will be supplied, though students are welcome to bring their own.
Bring your personal ephemera (items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity), ideas, creativity and self-expression.
