The goal of the workshop is that each student will work on three altered book projects. The first step is to carve a niche into each book using a variety of techniques. Then each book will be altered using various mixed media practices. Along the way, there will be sharing of the history of assemblage and bookmaking as well as the study of visual literacy and its effect on creating a theme for each project. At the end of the workshop, each student should have altered books with strong emotional messages and/or thematic content to cherish.

Evening extras (optional):
Friday evening, 7-8:30pm
