Know When to Fold MORE of ‘Em

Studio Place Arts (SPA)

Barre, VT

Monday June 13, 2011, 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

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 “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.

Materials fee: $10.00

Supplies: Awl, bonefolder, ruler, X-Acto knife or utility knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil, glue brush, glue stick.

  • Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.

Optional materials/tools: Collage materials (small bits of handmade paper, fabric, fibers, etc.), rubber stamps and pads, markers, pens, colored pencils, and decorative scissors.

  • Note: These materials will be used for creating content for your books.

Cost: Members $65/Non-Members $75
