INSTRUCTOR: CASS MULLANE
Hate seeing books thrown away? Let’s fix that. In this fun, inspiring class you’ll take an old book headed for the landfill and turn it into something interesting!
Altered books start with a book that has been published. Then, you alter the book and create something artistic, typically with a theme. Using your own book** , you will learn how to prepare it for altering, explore ways to develop backgrounds, learn about a number of mixed media supplies, then add details that relate to your theme.
So grab a few friends and let's alter some books! Class size is limited, so please register early!
Art supplies are provided with a $12 materials fee payable directly to the instructor at the first class. All you need to bring to class is your book** to alter.
** You can find tons of hard cover books (no paperbacks) at yard sales, the library, used bookstores, your friends' houses and your own house. For this class, look for a hard cover book that has fairly sturdy paper (no super lightweight or flimsy paper!) and that has the cover and spine intact. Please bring a book with between 150 and 250 pages.
