Altered Books from Beginning to End, Background Techniques To The Cover

This two-part workshop begins with Painting Without Planning, where you’ll play with a lot of different ways to make backgrounds for books or cards: scraping, bleaching, masking, stamping and more, using simple materials such as sponges, old credit cards, shaving cream and more. Be prepared for fun and lots of surprises! Part two of this workshop is Altered Book, where you’ll take an old, unloved, book and turn it into an interactive work of art. You will learn to make pockets, pop-ups, windows, niches and drawers that entice the viewer to keep turning pages.
