An old book, which no longer interests, can be undone, cut, paint, sew, erased, pasted.


You can use different techniques, stencils, stamps, printing, and different materials, fabric, thread...
 

In this way it relives under a new, more personal form and from book becomes sculpture, installation. You can read it in a different way, the text will no longer matter, but the new intervention will determine its reading.
 

In fact, working on an old book is like working on oneself, recycling and recycling themselves, new ways of being and proposing: the end but at the same time a new beginning.
 

The workshop aims to accompany the participants to the realization of a work of their own, starting from an idea and developing it in the most appropriate and personal way.
