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.

Weaver  Gynnie Moody brought her sensibility for pattern and
surface design to this Envelope Accordion Fold Book
and left feeling excited, energized… 
and, for me- ready for a little nap.
