11th/12th/13th March - Altered Book Journal - 7.30-10pm/9-5pm/9-4pm
After repeated requests and dozens of desperate pleas, lol, I have managed to squeeze in a weekend of altering. We will be taking an old book, making a hidden drawer, folded pages, hidden pockets, layering techniques, windows, flaps, tags and pull outs. You will experience techniques galore and have a ball putting them into practise. Painting, inking, spraying, folding, pleating, layering, cutting, hiding, doodling, stamping, colouring, eating, drinking, chatting, laughing and generally having a ball.
And heres news of a new weekend in progress. Making your own books/journals. Now these are really sturdy journals not just mini books, We will be making them from canvas, card and watercolour paper. You will learn new techniques for constructing them from scratch.We will be using various ways to bind the journals, machine stitching, ribbon binding, coptic stitching . The covers are made from sturdy mountboard for maximum durability.
I will be sorting a date out as soon as I get a minute, but its 4.20 am and I,m not in the mood to find the diary, lol. Drop me a line if you are interested.
So what have I been up to today..??
