This workshop is for those 11 – 14 years old.
Amaze your friends and family by making flag books and flexagons, which are fun, versatile books based on the accordion. The basic folded form is easy and quick to produce, and it can be adapted into more complex and creative books. Participants are encouraged to bring materials for both decorating the book covers and the inside of their books. Additional materials will be available for use during the class.
In this workshop, participants will leave class with two 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.
