Altered Books  

An Altered Book is mixed-media art featuring an old book with new life breathed into it! Cut, tear, glue, paint, collage, stamp, fold and adorn the pages in whatever direction your imagination takes you. Choose from a variety of old books (or bring your own) and begin to create something unique. Perhaps use some of the text, or cover it up with gesso and start fresh. Follow a theme or topic or work randomly and without a plan. Altered books are a great way to begin a new creative journal – “staring at a blank page” is not an issue! Bring images or items (such as charms, beads, photos, lace, etc.) to include in your precious project. Note: this is not a class where you will learn to create “book sculptures.” $10 materials fee payable to the instructor at the start of class.
