Workshop description
Accordion books are one of the most versatile book forms, and in this workshop participants will learn two different approaches to making accordion structures. We’ll begin looking at slides, and then launch into demonstrations and work time to construct our books. Most students will complete two book structures. No previous bookmaking experience is required for this workshop.  Students should bring an apron or workshirt, and may bring their own decorative papers.
