Step 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 – those with no, little experience, or vast experience in altered bookmaking. Materials list provided at registration. Limit of 18. For more information about book selection and related, please read Jesse’s “Guide to Choosing a Book to Alter.”
