Cover-to-Cover: Taking Altered Books to Another Level with Renee Richetts

November 23, 2019, 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

Altered books are a genre of mixed-media sculpture that changes a book from its original form, converting its shape and often changing its meaning.

Using recycled hard-cover books, acrylics, plastics and hand-made art paper, attendees will create an altered book sculpture worthy of display in your local book arts exhibition.

Techniques we will practice:

  • How to pick the hard-cover book
  • Hard-cover binding
  • Cut-aways and folds to create the 3-D effect you want
  • Covering or adding text to frame your narrative
  • Making accordion fold pull-out pages
  • Adding pockets and inserts


Renée Richetts  is a California artist who works at her studios in Southern California and Chicago. She has over 30 years teaching experience in the U.S. and Europe. She is a huge fan of all things science-fiction related, and brings a sense of fun and generosity to all her classes.

$45 for EAP members/$50 for non-members. $10 materials fee

*Note that this workshop is 3 hours, and space is limited to 5 attendees.

All tools and supplies will be provided.
