altered bookmaking in the Pendle Hill art studioStep into the next chapter of your life with a newly recreated, interactive book to tell your transformation story! In this program, as we alter a book – from its physical structures to its narrative – we will contemplatively and creatively consider our life journeys, our next steps, and our spiritual leadings. “Transformation Stories” offers opportunities to draw, paint, collage, craft pop-ups and other architectural techniques, journal, and be creative in community.

This course is especially relevant for those who wish to process a life change, honor an important memory, or seek vision. All are welcome – from those who are new to altering books to those with vast experience in the art form.

A materials list will be provided in Spring 2022.
