Art is Powerful Medicine: An Altered Book Workshop

Saturday, July 13, 2019
9:30 AM-3:00 PM

In this workshop , we’ll express our experiences through a mixed media, altered book process.  Mixed Media processes include creating secret compartments and hiding places, doors that open with hinges and close with latches, pockets that hold things you want to remember and use later, and window shutters that open like those of an Advent calendar. Please bring any elements or images that are meaningful to you to be included in your altered book.

Commuter: $60 includes lunch plus an additional $25 materials fee

Registration will close on Friday, July 5th.
