Scenes From An Altered Books Workshop with the CBBAG

On Saturday I taught an altered book workshop in partnership with the CBBAG. We had a terrific space in the Creekside Community Centre with large windows giving us a lovely view of the seawall and plenty of natural light. It’s been about three and half years (I think) since I last taught this class because my focus has been on paper cutting over the past intervening years. Thank goodness it is like riding a bike, and I remembered everything I needed to pass on to participants.

I’ve included photos of some of the work created during the class, most of which was still a work in progress by the end. It was a fun group to work with. My favourite part is how people take my techniques and come up with their own ideas.

Thank you to the CBBAG for inviting me to teach this class and taking care of the administrative tasks around running the workshop.

Now the question is: should I teach this class again…?
