Altered book workshop

Here are some photos of the students from my last altered book workshop. They were very enthusiastic as you can see from their faces. A lot of work was created by everyone.

This is the lovely June who tried to tell us at the beginning of class that she had no artistic talent whatsoever. I think we managed to change her mind. June created some wonderful pages and saw napkins and paint in a whole new light.

Kerri was very keen, she had even started a book before she arrived to class, I've never seen such a prolific student, she churned out some beautiful pages, so full of colour and interest.

Darling Marty's a regular at the workshops, she has a wonderful altered book she's created, but she wanted to decorate some papers ready for the hand made journal class coming up in April, she almost has enough papers now to make a journal, she was so productive.

Margaret has also been to the workshop before and her book is looking really lovely. Margaret puts a lot of thought into her pages and has created some wonderful pieces.

I think this was Sue's third class, unfortunately she had to leave early, so she wasn't able to create as much as she would have liked. Raelene has also been to the workshop before, she now works at the studio where the class is held.

The next workshop is a decorated papers and hand made journal class on the 20th April. We also have a class making a vintage book on the 22nd June. I'm making a sample so will have photos on my blog as it progresses.

Keep spreading the joy, Ro. I can see the happiness in their faces; nothing is more wonderful than creating beauty.

What a great workshop, wish I'd been there, looks like loads of lovely work was done.
Maybe you could just hop over to the UK and do one over here!!
Or better still what about an online workshop :-)

Art on, Monica

Each time I see one of your workshops I wish I was there and this one is no different. I so appreciate that you inspire all your attendees to create their 'own' thing.

Mmmmm, a whole workshop just to work on an altered book, sounds like fun. I'm learning on the hop, so to speak, just starting my first round robin at our craft hub. You sound like a kind and encouraging tutor. I'd love to play at your place.
