This class is really a favorite, I love seeing students creative ideas explode.
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 you'll be creating a hard-backed accordion-style book. You'll learn how to construct an extensive fold-out book and then how to collage much of the juicy ephemera that's included in your kit, as well as personal items you bring to your project.
Your kit will include all the materials to build the base of your Concertina book, and lots of collage materials: vintage book pages, a variety of ephemera, colored paper, vintage postage stamps, and envelope templates so we can explore some construction concepts within the pages of your book. There will be a glue stick in your kit, but feel free to bring along additional adhesives (elmers glue, yes paste, etc) & scissors.
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? Everyone is encouraged to bring your own personal items to work with, as well. They can be flat or 3-d, family photos, old greeting cards, almost anything will work!
What begins as blank pages becomes an incredible creation and story telling art-piece.
