Concertina Book : February 8th, 2020 : 10am-2pm
This workshop is held at my Downtown Los Angeles Studio
453 South Spring Street, LA 90026, STUDIO 1112
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 class we'll be creating a hard-backed accordion-style book. We'll learn how to construct the book and then add all the juicy ephemera, vintage photos, stamping, envelopes and any other personal items you'd like to add.
We'll be working with vintage book pages, ephemera, paper, stamps, using paper and fabric with hand-drawn templates and all sorts of other construction concepts we can explore in this small but mighty Concertina Book.
It's always a good idea to think about who this creation might be for... will it be for inspirational quotes and pages to keep? will it be a baby book? maybe for someone's birthday? You may want to bring personal items, they can be flat or 3-d, or photos to use when collaging into your book.
What begins as blank pages becomes an incredible creation and story telling artpiece.
