Upcoming classes at Studio Place Arts

I have two classes coming up in the next two months, both at Studio Place Arts (a.k.a. SPA) in Barre, Vermont. To register for a class, call the SPA office at (802) 479-7069.

Here’s the scoop:

Know When to Fold ‘Em (a three-day workshop)

Handmade book - flexagon

Flexagon

Dates: May 19, 23, & 26
Time: 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Cost: SPA Members $80/Non-Members $90, $10 materials fee

Description: The accordion book is a deceptively simple book structure. While the basic folded form is easy and quick to produce, it can be adapted into more complex and creative books. In this workshop, participants will create several books based on the accordion structure – the basic accordion, panel book, the flexagon, and the flag book. In addition, the structures will incorporate artist trading cards that will be created during the workshop.

Participants are encouraged to bring materials/tools for both decorating the book covers and creating the artist trading cards. Additional materials will be available for use during the class.

In this two-day workshop, each participant will leave class with four completed books and a basic knowledge of bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. No previous experience required – this is a great class for a beginner.

Know When to Fold MORE of ‘Em

Handmade star book

Star book

Date: June 13, 2011
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Cost: SPA Members $65/Non-Members $75, $10 materials fee

Description: In this “sequel” to the Know When to Fold ‘Em workshop, participants will create several books based on the accordion structure – the nested accordion, the star book, and the tunnel book. Participants are encouraged to bring materials/tools for both decorating the book covers and pages. Additional materials will be available for use during the class.

In this intensive, one-day workshop, each participant will leave class with three completed books and a basic knowledge of bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. No previous experience required (and you don’t need to take the first class in the series) – this is a great class for a beginner.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
