Artists’ Books Beginner Workshop: Flag Books and Flexagons with Becky Johnston
Past Event

In this beginners workshop, you’ll learn how to make two dynamic book structures – flag books and flexagons. Based on a simple folded accordion, flag books can be used to explore movement and layers of action in text and image. with layers of paper “flags” that pop out, making it a delightful structure for evoking movement and action. Flexagons are book forms made from a single sheet of paper that seem to magically twist and turn as the reader interacts with them.

$79 for members | $99 for non-members
