Our Picture This series presents an Altered Book workshop this
Saturday, February 7th, 2-4 pm.
We all love to read and learn from books, but we can take our passion for books one step further— any book, old or new, can become an altered book!The transformation can involve any number of interventions—from adding materials to erasing and cutting out bits of the original. The degree of alteration can be minimal, or it can be a total obliteration of what was there.
We will investigate the work of several prominent book artists, and spend some time experimenting! Used books, a selection of basic cutting, gluing, and drawing tools will be provided.
. Please stop by our Circulation Desk, or call the library at 677-7060.
