Class Fee: $75.00
Choose to embrace Valentine’s Day or a theme of your choice to create your own one of a kind altered book. Take a book and cut, tear, burn, glue, collage, paint, embellish…any method that transforms it into a work of art. Some other themed ideas are: family and friends, adopted ancestors, favorite quotes, garden, favorite holiday, travel, reflections or thoughts the beach, someone special…the sky is the limit! We will prepare pages and learn how to bend, fold, cut, collage, and color pages to create a special book. A variety of materials will be provided by the instructor to include gesso, paints, napkins, rubber stamps, brads, ribbon and lace, and a variety of papers. Come for the instruction, become inspired, and create a multi-dimensional book that expresses your creativity. If you have already started an altered book, you can bring that to work in as well.
