LOLB - Altered Books From your Library free workshop
12.15 to 2.pm
Artist: Christina Mitrentse
Age range: Adults
Take an existing book and adapt it, alter it, deface it, using cut-up, collage and mark-making techniques to create completely new structures and visual texts/images.
For inspiration, you'll examine a selection of altered books made by artists and writers and you'll discuss poetry beyond the text including visual elements, invisible elements and the role of chance in writing and publishing book within the digital era.
Come prepared to think in three dimensions, and forget all you were ever taught about not scribbling in books.
Materials: Please bring a book that you are happy to alter! All other materials will be provided.
Booking: The workshop is free. Please email The Library of Lost Books on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
