In this workshop, drawing inspiration from images and samples of altered books and the many forms they can take, participants will transform their own book using mixed media and a variety of techniques. We will explore themes and structures using various additive and subtractive methods, including collage, text manipulation, image transfers, transparencies, sewing, folding, pop-ups, and more. Participants should bring a book (or books) to alter and a possible theme to explore, and are also welcome to bring a few small found objects, images, photos, or other ephemera they would like to incorporate into their piece. Esker Foundation will provide basic materials for this workshop. Participants must be a minimum of 16 years old.
