In this one- day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to develop books with imagery and content. In the morning, we will focus on a sculptural pop-up eight-page book, created from a single sheet of paper. In the afternoon, each student will create two more single sheet books that will be designed as a set with a common theme. This workshop is open to all levels of experience.
