Materials Fee: $20 Includes: rivets, mica, ephemera, copper, leather, one set of book corners, and a hardcover book.

Create lasting treasures from old hardcover books. We will be making an etched copper plate for inside or outside of your book cover, and recessed spaces inside the book to put significant ephemera and special objects. Covers of books will be altered in a variety of ways, including a window with space between two panes of mica to create a translucent collage.

Please bring: indoor shoes, a work apron and your lunch. For your book, bring ephemera and significant objects for inclusion in the spaces we will create. Feel free to bring your own hardcover book if you have a particular size in mind. Ensure that the spine is in reasonable shape.
