A fantastic way to display your keepsakes: have it standing up to show off your artwork or lay it down and let the pages tell a story in themselves.
In this workshop, students will build a hard-backed accordion-style book and collage the pages into their own story. This is a unique, alternative construction to the usual accordion book: We begin with individual pages that are adhered to appear as one long page and create covers from heavy chipboard. Construction of the book, plus the concepts and techniques of collage will be covered in this workshop.
Participants will explore the beauty and the uses of juicy ephemera, vintage photos, unique stamping methods, the making of interior envelopes with hand-drawn templates and adding in 3-d elements. There is much to explore in the small but mighty Concertina Book.
It's always a good idea to think about who this Concertina Book might be for... will it be for inspirational quotes and pages to keep? will it be a baby book? maybe for someone's birthday?
Materials provided for this workshop but students are encouraged to bring to their table personal items to make their piece exclusively unique. They can be flat or 3-d, examples include: old family photos, pages from an old notebook, grandma’s needle book...
What begins as blank pages becomes an incredible creation and storytelling art piece.
