Use this visually intricate structure of opposing flaps or “flags” to create a one-of-a-kind book that showcases contrasting or cohering images and text. This stunning structure was created by Hedi Kyle and has infinite possibilities. The book “claps” open, and pages can be read individually or all at once when the accordion spine is stretched to its full panoramic landscape. The Flag Book workshop will make this seemingly complex form easy to learn for any level of book-arts practitioner.  

Materials to Bring: Personal ephemera (image and text) to be included in the book.

Optional and available at SFCB for student use during workshop: bone folder, scissors.

Workshop Fee (includes $10 materials fee): $100.00

Past Student Reviews:

“It was a very fun class! I really enjoyed Bettina's examples and it showed me there are so many possibilities for the flag book.”

“I can't wait to take more classes with Bettina!”

“Low key and pretension free delivery of content. As newbies, I was worried I would be completely out of my league. However, we weren't left to the lions as Bettina showed us the possibilities of the form and then let us play, explore and tinker.”

“Clear directions, examples to look at, time and space to work.”
