Saturday’s Altered Book Workshop at DCAD was an inspired & inspiring nudge of what happens when you create time and space for yourself- and making art. The workshop covered basic book structures and image transfers. These demos became a departure point for projects in every direction.
|Burnishing an image to be transfered|
Each participant came with different experiences, resources, materials, images, tools, and a need to carve out some time to learn something new, be creative, and let go of outside responsibilities.
|“This day with you was a gift to travel a creative path and explore all the “stuff” I have accumulated over the years such as buttons, lace, paper, old letters, etc. I have been vindicated for saving everything.”
We altered books, inside and out.

surface design to this Envelope Accordion Fold Book
and left feeling excited, energized…
and, for me- ready for a little nap.
looks like a wonderful workshop. come to nj and do some!
Stacy- have books & “stuff” will travel! Would love to come up and teach in NJ, will let you know when that happens. PS Two of the participants drove down from Jersey!
Hi! Oddly enough, I found this page while Googleing “Altered Book Workshop New Jersey.” I belong to a group of 10-or-so “crafty chicks,” as we call ourselves, that would definitely be interested if you were to have a workshop in Jersey. Please keep us Jersey girls posted! –Michelle
@Michelle- so glad you found me. I am coming up to NJ for some school workshops. will let you know about some Altered Books Workshops in the future. Thank you for your interest- hope to meet you and some crafty Jersey chicks!
