Step into the next chapter of your life to tell your transformation story with a newly recreated, interactive, multimedia book! Spend time in the sanctuary of Pendle Hill’s art studio with safe and brave community as we dive deep into re-creation, introspection, and transformation.
In this program, as we alter a book’s physical structure and narrative, we will contemplatively and creatively consider our life journeys, our next steps, and our spiritual leadings. Transformation Stories offers opportunities to draw, paint, collage, craft pop-ups and other architectural techniques, journal, and explore creativity in community. While techniques will be taught, participants will have the flexibility and autonomy to choose which experiences are right for them, their books, and their stories.
This course is especially relevant for those who wish to process a life change, honor an important memory, or seek vision. Adults, seniors, and teens are welcome to participate – from those who are new to altering books to those with vast experience in the art form.
Instructions on how to choose a book to alter and how to select fabric to decorate the cover will be sent to registered participants before the start of the program. If possible, participants are asked to bring their own books. Fabric options will be provided or participants may bring their own. All other materials will be provided.
