Altered Book Workshop with Katerina Lanfranco
Thursday, February 16, 2012, 2:30–4:00 p.m.
The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine
In this hands-on workshop led by artist and educator Katerina Lanfranco, participants are invited to explore the formal constraints and surprising elements of the book format, and how used books can be creatively re-purposed to make art. Participants will use found materials, mixed-media collage, drawing, and transfer techniques to redesign the space, form, purpose, and meaning of an old book.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own book with a cover and pages they can imagine altering.
