Rachael Ashe’s altered book workshop is an introduction to examples and techniques for transforming old books into one-of-a-kind pieces of art. There is an unlimited potential for creating interesting work by altering books through cutting, folding, rolling, collage, etc. This course will demonstrate a selection of techniques and provide a starting point for creating work of your own. The goal will be to complete one finished “folded page” altered book by the end of the workshop. Please bring at least two old books you would like to work with.

ChalkXChange is a neighbourhood creative commons. Like a favourite corner store, we’re nearby and sometimes serve pie. Rather than groceries, we stock ideas, stories and activities. Getting together as neighbors is the foundation for creative neighbourhoods, and in turn, creative cities. At ChalkXChange, we draw on our collective creative arts and invite the public to participate in events, workshops and projects.
