Learn how to recreate an existing book into your own interactive work of art. Altered book-making is a powerful way to process a life change, or to honor an important memory or vision. Journey through a creative and spiritual process of introspection and self-expression. Use paint or fancy papers. Build windows, doorways, drawers, or scrolls. Embed sentimental objects. Add your own words or find a poem within the existing text. Your book will carefully hold what you give it. As you transform your book, you may find yourself transformed as well. Limit of 16.
