  1. Supply List

By Katie Platte

NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, March 4, 2022.

Create two finished accordion books that can be used as blank canvasses for drawings, mixed media work, collage, or as a model for a more complex, printed-book edition. They are ideal for displaying artworks, whether they’re held like a book, or placed on a table or shelf to display all the pages at once. Students focus on finishing two different forms: a traditional accordion book with a hinged cover and a simple folded version. Other structures may be explored as time allows. The workshop focuses on the construction of the books, so all materials should be cut to size before class.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
