Project of the Month:
Creative Accordion Book Boxes

Workshop participants will be invited to create accordion-book boxes,
exploring identity and pride in who they are. Using simple folding
techniques enhanced by optional complexity (additional folding,
cutting, variations) and a combination of writing, drawing, and
collage, each participant will create a personalized book object.
Participants are invited to bring ephemera and scraps of photos and
memorabilia in additional to materials supplied. Participants will
also encounter contemporary book art works as inspiration for the
relationship between text and image. Through artistic expression,
participants will explore self and community in terms of points of
pride and personality.
