Star & Tunnel Books workshop
August 1, 2015
74 Pleasant Street
These beautiful, three-dimensional books are sure to capture the imagination! Don’t let the appearance of these books fool you – they’re much easier to create than it looks.
Participants will create the books from layers of paper and collage materials. The star book opens up completely to form a star shape when the covers are held back-to-back. You can use the attached ribbon ties to secure the book when open or closed. The tunnel book has pages suspended between two, thin folded accordions. Openings in the pages allow you to see through the book to the back, creating layers of depth.
In this workshop, each participant will leave class with a completed book and the basic knowledge of bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. You might feel more comfortable having some previous bookbinding experience in this workshop, but it is not required.
All materials are included in the workshop fee, but feel free to bring materials for use in creating a theme/concept for your books. Several ideas are:
- Collage materials – small bits of handmade paper, fabric, fibers, etc.
- Photographs: Sized at least 12″ wide x 5″ high (bring multiples of each image)
- Rubber stamps and pads
- Markers, pens, colored pencils, etc.
- Decorative scissors/punches
