Accordion books are one of the earliest and most versatile structures. Great for beginners, this class does not require any experience in bookbinding. We’ll take you through cutting sheets of paper, folding sections, and custom cover making. From there we will complete two related forms – the one page meander book and the fun and playful hexaflexagon (a two-sided/three-sided trick book) which is full of potential.
Perfect for zines and artist books, accordions have many creative possibilities and can be altered to suit your project. Participants will leave with two or three different accordion samples and with detailed notes to keep practicing and playing at home! This is an excellent class to take before some of the compound structure classes such as altered pamphlet, kinetic book or tunnel books.
