Altered Images Workshop

Come join us as we help you to create new images from old. Learn techniques for altering and improving printed photographs that just don’t have any pizzazz. We will also work with simple heat transfer techniques using photocopied copyright-free images as well as packing tape transfers. You will be amazed at how creative you can be! We'll be meeting in Forestry 103 on the HSU Campus at noon on Saturday, August 14.

The following materials will be provided:
-Packing tape
-Heat transfer tool
-B&W copyright-free  photocopied images
-Parchment paper
-Masking tape
-PVA glue and brush
-Photographs (thanks  to Grace B.)
-Images from The  Smithsonian  magazine
-Wood burning tool
-Gel pens

You will need to bring:
-Smooth paper (Bristol is good), scraps are OK.
-Burnishing tool (wooden spatula with straight edge  works)
-Watercolor brushes
-Magazine illustrations

Optional but helpful:
-Heat transfer tool or heavy old iron with no holes
-2" wide clear packing tape
-Watercolor paints
-Gel pens
      -Photographs (they should be the discarded  
       type, the ones you haven’t put in albums and  
      probably never will...out of focus, too dark,   
      not interesting, etc.)
