Bobbie Benson has always been passionate about old books. Her first experience with altered books was adding memorabilia to her father’s beloved copy of King Arthur and the Round Table. More recently, she used Anne Morrow’s Gift from the Sea to record her month by the beach in California. For her, altered books are all about this kind of interacting with what’s on the page. In this class, she’ll teach you a variety of hands-on techniques for transforming a book into something that recalls a special time, person, or place. You’ll paint, weave, stitch, collage, burn, stamp, and even add small niches to hold mementos. Bobbie will bring books for you to choose from, but encourages you to bring one of your own that is meaningful to you.
