New DVD 4: The Altered Book


Based on my For Your Eyes Only live workshop, The Altered Book: 10 Mixed-Media Techniques contains 95-minutes of instruction on all things book making.

You will learn to make a handmade book from scratch using repurposed book covers and paper. This is a no-sew binding that allows you to bind single sheets into what appears to be a traditional bound book. You will see how to make a binding bar that is the basis for the book and create multiple interactive pages with doors, windows, flaps, and more. I will demonstrate a paper quilting technique to add a dynamic and complex background to your pages and also talk about using dimensional objects to embellish your cover. This class is suitable for both beginning and more seasoned book artists.

Here is a preview...


This is available now as an immediate download or you can preorder the DVD at the Interweave online shop. It will soon be available via my website shop, through other online shops, and at a store near you.

And check out this (very) short preview of all 4 of my new DVDs
