16-page Meander, Artist book


A simple 8-page accordion, a stair-step, interwoven book with multiple signatures, books with interchangeable parts, and books that hide secrets in their very makeup—all to delight and amaze you!  You will paint paper for some books, adding collage, stamps, punches, beads, and thread to make each book uniquely your own. You will take home books you've made the very first day and acquire lots of tools for thinking up your own books as well as teaching those you learn. This is an excellent workshop for teachers, parents and grandparents looking for fun and interesting things to do with children ages 7 and up. Expect to make 10-13 structures in this weekend intensive.  Barbara developed the content for Adventures in Visual Books over 15 years teaching at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Her instruction books, Unbinding the Book: the Boundless Concertina and More Concertina Madness are in book arts centers worldwide. Enrollment is limited to 4 students
