In this workshop, we'll use bookboard to build a shallow box (6" x 14" x .5") with three compartments. We’ll collage imagery in each compartment: three separate scenes that connect to tell a story through chronological sequence, spatial unity, and/or some other theme. You can bring your own collage materials, but a range of scraps and ephemera will also be on hand. We will look at adhesive methods, explore methods for creating 3-D effects, and talk about ways of incorporating text. Participants will receive instruction in collage, layout, and sequence, and will leave with the fundamentals of building, covering, and dimensionally decorating a compartmented box.
Materials to Bring: X-acto knife, Teflon (or bone) folder, metal triangle, glue brush, pencil, collage materials (optional)
