Kaleidescope Books with Laura Jackett

Kaleidescope Books with Laura Jackett In-Person

Space limited. Registration required. 

1. This program deals with Three Dimensional Bookbinding. Students will produce a finished book during the class. We will learn how to fold signatures, attach covers and choose appropriate imagery for these sculptural books. Students will also learn the basics of pop up books for use within their pages. Here are books that move and turn and can be examined inside and out as well as read through.

2. All experience levels are welcome in this lively and productive workshop. Students may bring a front and cover sheet of their own: a drawing or computer print 4” x 6” will work.

3. Description: Do you like to fold and cut paper? Those are the basic skills students need to be able to construct accordion, tunnel, business card, and carousel books. Think of a book as a stage; we can look through and into these books for three-dimensional effects. We’ll also have an overview of pop-up books and how to incorporate the basic techniques into your finished pieces. Choose your favorite Japanese paper for your book covers, try some new intricate folding methods, and glue it all together. These book forms may be just what you need to convey your message more directly.
