Altered Book Workshop

Colleen Rauscher

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.

Registration essential.
