Also known as a “star” book, this structure provides endless opportunities for design and experimentation. The instructor guides students through the process of planning, creating, and constructing a carousel book – all in one action-packed day! Additional class discussions will focus on calculating page dimensions and layout for different sizes of carousel books – a process that may seem daunting at first, but isn’t as tricky as it seems!  

Materials to Bring: Any additional papers/ephemera that might be used as decoration for book covers (photos/collage elements/etcetera).

Optional: You may want to bring additional items for page decoration and creating imagery, since we will spend an hour or two in class working on the “insides” of our books. Some suggestions: rubber stamps, colored pencils, items for collage, small bits of ephemera, pen & inks, stencils, etc.

Optional and available at SFCB for student use during workshop: utility knife, bone folder, pencil, right angle triangle (small or medium size is o.k.), glue brush, scissors, awl.
