Nested Accordion Books
Saturday, February 23, 12-2:30pm
Location: 817 W. Davis Street #110 
Instructor: Peter and Donna Thomas
# Students 4 - 10 

This workshop will explore the exciting world of the artists books. Participants will be given instruction in basic bookbinding techniques while making a small format accordion book.

The nested pop up accordion fold book structure was developed by Peter and Donna Thomas. It features two layers of accordion pages that appear to weave in and out of each other. Advanced students may have time to put text in their book and will want to come prepared with a short 4-10 word quote to work with.

All materials will be provided, but students may want to bring their own papers to substitute for those provided. This will be fun and informative workshop and students will go home with one completed book.

The Oil and Cotton and Wandering Book Artists will provide students with: 
a glue brush
bone folders/burnishers
scissors
12 inch metal ruler
awls/needles
pencils
cutting mat,
break off blade mat knives
PVA Elmers Glue 

*You are welcome to bring your own tools, decorative paper, paints, watercolors, pens, rubber stamps, etc. to illustrate and add text to your books. You might also want to bring images and small objects to collage.
