Make charming little books from beautiful paper scraps. Students will use what is usually thrown away during art and book making projects, including rejected drawings and prints. They'll learn to make multiple variations on pamphlets, pocket pamphlets, concertinas, and anything your imagination desires to create. The class will include directed instructions with pamphlet variations, but students can make structures on their own as well. A great upcycling project!
