Altered Books Class

Learn how to recreate an existing book into your own work of art.  Windows, doorways, drawers and scrolls are just a few of the techniques you will learn in this class.  Some exploratory creative writing will help guide your story.

Altered book making is a powerful way to process a life change, or to honor an important memory or vision; as you transform a book, you may find yourself transformed as well.
