Altered Books Crafting Class with Kiona Millirons
Alter an old book into a three-dimensional work of art focusing on a woman’s journey. The theme can be focused on a personal journey, goal, experience or a historical journey of someone significant in your life. Artists will learn the basics of altered books in this introductory class: how to choose the right book for your idea, deciding which method and technique to use in the alteration, and learning basic techniques in laying a foundation for a finished piece will be discussed. All supplies will be furnished, including books. Feel free to bring your own book to alter if you have a special one in mind. Hard cover books are encouraged.
