What’s an “Altered Book?” We start with an old book and create a new one by playing with paint, pictures, glue, and a bit of self-reflection.


In this three-part workshop, discover new insights about change in your life by talking, writing, and creating.


Session 1 – Change from Without


“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” ~ Maya Angelou


If you are alive, you have experienced change that you didn’t plan on happening. In this session, we will consider such changes and create an opening page through collage to represent our insights.

Session 2 – Change from Within


“Nobody finishes well by accident.” ~ John Maxwell


In this session, the pages in our books will be painted, stamped, and folded to create pockets to hold intentions that have changed us from within.


Session 3 – Changes to Come


“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt


On this day, our book gets a window and a view of our futures. We will also create the cover to represent our new selves.
