Altered Book Workshop

Myself and fellow artist Steffanie Lorig are co-teaching an Altered Book Workshop March 4, 2017. More info below...

  • Saturday, March 4, 2017
  • 9:00am  12:30pm
  • School of Visual Concepts 

This introductory class will teach found poetry and altered book techniques that will allow you to bring new life to old books, turning cast-off pages into a reliquary of personally meaningful content.

Co-facilitated with artist, Steffanie Lorig, we will use several techniques that help turn trash into treasure. By the end of the workshop, you will understand how to:

  • Choose and prep books to alter
  • Find poetry from within
  • Gain control over your inner critic
  • Give yourself permission to play, explore, and discover
  • Use collage, paint, wire, and found objects to create art!

Cost: $100 for a half day
Minimum attendees: 10; maximum attendees: 40
Age Range: 18+
Skill Level: All Levels
