This workshop introduces book artists to a fascinating structure that binds multiple accordion folds together into an elaborate honeycomb format. A truly flexible binding with limitless variations, it allows for experimentation with dimension, perspective, and visual effect. The multi-accordion can accommodate folds of different heights, lengths, and shapes, simple pop-up features, and cut-out windows. The structure can be left long and linear, or bound together on one side into a circular fan. It can be viewed multiple ways and directions; a structure that begs for interactivity with the reader.
Participants will learn the sewing and folding techniques and build models that explore these concepts. Several variations will be shown for students to consider for future projects, which may include incorporating pop-ups and cut-outs.
No experience necessary. Professional art supplies included.
DATES & TIMES:
October 1st, 9:30 am – 4:00 pm (1/2 hour lunch)
