#5040, Folded Accordingly with Rhiannon Alpers - March 17

$ 150.00


The right paper loves to be folded, creased and bound, and this course is an integrated exploration of the two pleasures of accordions and folds and where they intersect. Along the way students will learn or refresh their understanding of the fundamentals of folding and materials: (what makes a paper fold easily and stay), adhesives (what works best for accordions of all kinds), tools, vocabulary, and resources.

For this workshop, the bindings will be Winged Accordion, Triangle Pocket Accordion and Designating duet (Claire Von Vliet Interwoven structure). We'll cover a wide range of possibilities for these structures. Students will be tempted by a love of paper and all it’s possibilities for future artist books of their own.

Geared towards beginning to intermediate students, with basic cutting, measuring and folding skills and of course a love of paper.

    Saturday, March 17 from 9 am to 5 pm. There will also be an additional $35 materials fee.
