Altered Books Basics Workshop @ Bucks County Museum | England | United Kingdom

Saturday 24 February 2018

10am – 4pm

Tutor: Heather Hunter www.hunterbooks.co.uk

A marvellous opportunity to learn the basics of the art of altered books with book artist Heather Hunter whose work can be seen in the current exhibition at the museum Ex Libris: Altered Books.

In this Study Day you will investigate simple techniques to start respectfully altering a book. You will choose a book from a selection supplied that are ready for recycling.

You will start altering your book by discussing how to use the text that you want to respond to creatively.

Techniques that will be covered include strengthening pages, folding, cutting cavities and making pockets whilst retaining the quality of the book as an amazing piece of flexible engineering.

If time permits embellishments will be discussed and you will start to decorate the pages.

At the end of the day you will have a book ready for you to continue altering.

No previous experience is needed.

Cost £45 per person. To book please call 01296 331441 or book online below.
