Collage: Fun & Freedom Jackie Hefty

Papers, paint, glue and space to spread out. What better ingredients for fun.  Utilizing the elements of design, add some texture, sprinkle some contrasting or harmonious color, add a little tension or perhaps a soothing flow, highlight with a metallic, and you are good to go. If only. . . You are invited to come, explore, play and relax. Small little jewels or large wall statements, what is your comfort level?    Fri. May 10, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.   $90/$15 materials

Variations on the Accordion  

Versatile and adaptable, concertina or accordion style book structures lend themselves to so much more.  We will 'play' with and investigate variations using these structures.  A style or structure that can be woven together, layered as a tunnel book, sewn as a coptic, and more. The linear progression of a story line or imagery is favored by adults and children alike, yet it can be appreciated for the simple alluring structural design alone.  Paper choices/options will be provided upon registration. Previous bookmaking experience recommended, no specialized tools required to continue your 'play' at home. If you already have any of the items in the Basic Tool Kit, please bring.   Sat. May 11,  1 - 4 p.m.    $75/$10 materials

Meandering & Non-Adhesive Bookstructures  Jackie Hefty

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 of your own decorative papers that you made in a previous class if you'd like or those commercially available.  
Fri. May 24,  1 - 4 p.m.    $65/$15 materials

It just sounds difficult, not really so hard, but it gives you bragging rights! You will be sure to impress your friends or family with your bookmaking skills when you show them this creation. An exposed stitching design on the spine of the book resembles a herringbone pattern.  This book is designed to lie flat when open which allows for ease in drawing or writing. Makes a great gift! Previous book making is recommended, but not required. Minimal supplies are necessary to continue making beautiful books at home. Thurs. May 30, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m.   $ 70/$15 materials
