Upcoming Workshop
Storage Books with Susan Viguers
Saturday, April 27, 2019
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Registration opens Tuesday, April 2 at 12:00 PM

In this workshop you will construct a simple storage book made of folded card stock in which windows have been cut, held together with a spine. What is stored need not be flat, although it is easier to work with pieces that are less than about 1/16 inch thick. We will be making a model and then, if time, a more fully realized book. Images and thin objects to be stored will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own.

All needed tools will be supplied, but, if you have them, bring any of the following: scissors, glue stick, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, pens/pencils, and ruler. If you’ll need some nourishment during that time, bring it with you.
