Altered Book Making Workshop

Altered Book Making Workshop

Altered Book Making gives new life to damaged or outdated books by using them as a canvas for creative expression.

In this workshop, art therapist Mikayla Voller, will introduce you to the art form of altered book making. She will demonstrate a variety of techniques including collage, blackout poetry, paper cutting and weaving.

The various words and illustrations found on selected pages will serve as a source of inspiration as you stamp, paint, and draw over them, gluing together pages and turning the book into a personalized art journal.

Beginner friendly- the focus is on expression over perfection. Mikayla will happily guide you in using tools and materials as well as in generating ideas and themes for pages.

Books and materials provided but we invite you to bring in any favorite scrap materials or found objects you may have.
