Concertina Album with Margo Klass

Saturday, August 17, 10 - 4

Corea artist Margo Klass, the recipient of the 2015 Alaska Governor's Individual Artist Award for the Arts, will lead participants in the creation of a concertina binding album. Using a technique that elegantly holds a collection of images or photos, the album looks like


a traditional book, but opens out for display. In this workshop participants will learn how to cut, fold, and hinge lengths of paper to make accordion-folded panels, cover boards with book cloth, inlay a cover plate, and join the text

block to the cover structure. If you bring images to class, we will add them to the album. Participants should bring lunch, snacks and drinks as desired. A list of optional bookmaking tools will be provided upon registration. $135
