Lou Cabeen- Altered Books Botanizing

May 29 @ 9:00 am - May 30 @ 4:00 pm

| $325

Altered Books Botanizing is a workshop in which an altered book can become a personal archive of life in a changing climate. In this workshop, participants will learn basic techniques for altering a book to use as a journal in which to record observations of the natural world. We will begin by editing the content of a used book via cutting, pasting, gesso, and collage. Methods of creating pockets and cavities in the existing book structure will be demonstrated and discussed. We will also learn how to dry and mount botanical specimens. We will decode the scientific labeling methods used for such specimens as well as taking inspiration from early botanists who used more idiosyncratic methods. In this way, our altered books can become an archive of our personal experience of the changing climate. And our observations and creativity can become an antidote for despair.
