Cass Art: Altered book making workshop with Julie Dodd
Venue: Cass Art
Times: 13:00 - 17:00
This workshop marks a new collaboration with Cass Art’s Liverpool store who are supporting our series of 4 artist’s window installations over the coming year, plus an artist’s workshop.
Working with local paper artist Julie Dodd, participants will be recycling unwanted paperback books to make toad stool sculptures produced through a series of cutting and paper manipulation techniques, which will be decorated using Cass Art products. Participants are invited to bring an old paperback book to recycle if they wish but books will be provided and available to use.
‘I am an installation artist and I mainly work with paper but I also recycle other discarded materials to form installations, bringing a new life and meaning to them. My artwork is based on repetition and is inspired by pattern and shape found in nature.I work in multiples, which I use to mimic life, growth and regeneration.’
– Julie Dodd
