    Altered Book Workshop with Supria Karmakar

    The altered book is a form of mixed media artwork in which a book or its components may be simply altered or become a complex altered sculpture. Using mixed media, collage techniques and the vintage layers of a book, participants will have an opportunity to create a new structure from an old hard covered book. Join us for this exciting five week workshop April 2 – May 7 (note: no class will be held on April 23) led by noted altered book artist Supria Karmakar.

    Fee: $200 plus $60 materials charge owed to the instructor at the first session (cash or cheque only please). For details and to register contact Judy Daley, Helson Gallery Curator
