Altered Art transforms an ordinary, everyday object into an extraordinary piece of art.
In this six hour, two day workshop, you will transform an ordinary hardcover book into a magical Book of Inner Light. You will learn techniques to create hidden pockets, doors and other devices to archive your dreams, inspirations, intuitive experiences, incantations, herbal potions and spells. Creating your own Book of Inner Light is a very personal and empowering journey that gives expression to the Divine Inner Child within us all.
No previous artistic skill is necessary. Upon signing up, you will receive a basic list of materials, as you will want to use the techniques you learn here to continue to work on your book at home.
There will be lots of bits & pieces on hand for you to choose from, but it’s best to also bring your own treasures (images, papers, ephemera, bits of broken jewelry, lace, feathers, buttons, keys and vintage fabrics) to personalize your book. There will be a selection of hardcover books to choose from and you can also bring your own.
This is a weekend workshop that runs from 11am to 2:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, April 22nd & 23rd. Please bring a snack and a drink and your imagination!
The workshop is held on Mad Lavender Farm and you are encouraged to come early to tour the grounds and immerse yourself in nature for inspiration.
