Meandering and Non-adhesive Books

No needles or sewing either! One sheet of paper can become a book with the correct folding, creasing and cutting. (Think paper dolls.) We will explore the possibilities of meandering books, accordion books with folded paper covers and a pocket accordion. Bring some decorative papers that you have made or purchased if you'd like, we will also make a few at the start of the afternoon.    Fri April 7, 1 - 5   $55/$10 materials
