Come and practise producing an altered book. How would you change a book? We will show you lots of ideas of how to transform a book into a work of art! Rather than just sending an old encyclopaedia to landfill, make it into something you want to keep. Doorstop, amusement, or an album of memories – it’s your choice!
You will take one home and one to carry on altering! Come and share your ideas with us!

– £38 for this full day workshop, payable in advance

Class fees should be paid in advance by card (which can be done over the phone- 01376 323280).

We will also accept cheques, which will be cashed two weeks before the date of the class once we are sure the class will run, and should be made payable to Braintree & Bocking Community Association.

There may be an additional cost for appropriate materials, which if applicable, should be paid to the tutor on the day of the class – please check the class details.

Cancellation policy

Fees are non-refundable from two weeks before the class unless we can sell the space to another student (subject to a minimum of six students booked). Fees may be transferable at our discretion.

Please understand that the Centre cannot afford to run classes at a loss, since we are a charity. As such, classes may be cancelled if we are unable to achieve a minimum number of students. If this is the case, you will be informed two weeks before the date of the class and your fee will be refunded.
