I am working with a school this year around the theme of food. My mum is the queen of altered books and I've always meant to do one myself. This summer after we left America, my mum got my sister and Molly and Freddie making altered books. They loved this process and way of creating, so when I started to think about how I would embed journals in a year 3 or year 6 class, I wondered if this would be the time to experiment with the altered book form. Alison, the teacher who I work with primarily at the school, was keen so, for the past week I've been considering the possibilities and have taken over the kitchens to play with altered books and the theme of food.
