Altered Book Workshop

Event Type: Adults
Date: 2/16/2020
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
 Altering books is another form of recycling, turning an unwanted, used book into a piece of art. Each altered book is unique. This growing art form has been exhibited in National galleries and online. Book pages can be painted, torn or folded into pockets or even pop-ups. Windows, doors and niches can be added, with fabric, beads and found objects glued or even sewn into pages. Junk mail, tags from items purchased, old postage stamps, ticket stubs and tea-bag tags can find new life in an altered book. Examples of altered books will be on display during the workshop, and a list of suggested ideas for altering books will be supplied to each participant. Materials provided will include books perfect to alter, magazines and old maps to cut up, ribbons, used postage, stickers and other assorted found objects. The instructor will have a limited supply of scissors, rulers, pencils and erasers, and glue sticks for the workshop. Each participant can keep the book they’ve started working on along with the sheet of ideas. This program supports the PA Forward Civic and Social Literacy Initiative.
