This week I'm having a blast teaching an "Altered Books" class to 13 keen 6-8th graders and preparing new items for my etsy shop (sneak peek coming soon!)  


I've been showing my students some pretty rad examples of altered books.  Today,  we looked at what uh-mazing things you can do with just an Xacto knife, a book, a big dose of patience and focus, and your imagination.


To get inspired, we looked at the work of:


Georgia Russell


Nicholas Jones




Noriko Ambe



Su Blackwell





Alexander Korzer-Robinson




Brian Dettmer



I can't wait to see what the students come up with!
