Altered books often contains words, sketches and mixed media / collage elements as a form of creative expression. Our instructor has discovered that art journaling, beneficial for everyone, promotes out of the box thinking and increases participants mark making skills. Artistic skills are a plus however, unnecessary for this 2-day workshop as it is focused on fun techniques and processes for participants of all levels. Students will have the opportunity to create doors, windows and pockets within their books whilst creating unique textures by cutting, tearing and adding.
