About This Class

cdfedcf0

The accordion book is one of the most versatile, yet simple, structures to have in your bookbinding toolkit. You can take any paper, regardless of the size and shape and create an accordion book with it. I love teaching this structure to kids because it’s a great way to get them started with making their own books. I love teaching it to adults because they can bring a certain wisdom to the structure and use the way it can be displayed as an element to create artistic or creative content.

In this class I help you expand on the basic one piece accordion to create a multi-page, pocket accordion with cards that can become interactive elements that tell a story or create an artistic thread throughout the book.

This class is an INTERMEDIATE level course that starts with simple folding then expands to include techniques like covering boards and adding ribbons.
