Handmade and Altered Art books Monday April 16, 23, 30 2:30 pm-5:00 pm Tuition cost $150
Using a variety of simple techniques the class will cover the basics of bookbinding. Methods of fabrication such as accordion fold books, Japanese’s stab binding, and pamphlet binding will be demonstrated. Altering, cutting and deconstructing existing books will be explored. Fill the blank books you create with all kinds of media, painting, poetry, collage or photography. The Altered books will be refashioned to create secret compartments and discover their sculptural qualities. No experience is required just a willingness to explore, play and discover your creative spirit with paper. Bring yourself and anything you would like to include in a handmade book.
