Discover how to make a piano hinge book with an unexpected secret compartment. In this class you will learn how to combine accordion folds, signatures, and a piano hinge spine to create a unique book with a playful hiding place. When the hinge pin is removed from the spine a hidden section of the book is revealed. This could contain the answer to the book’s riddle, a different ending, or maybe clues to the symbolism within the contents.

Using collage, stamping, and inks we’ll explore ways to express your unique vision. Bring an idea such as a poem, riddle, saying or visual theme to use in the book or just see what emerges when you play with the materials. 

Materials to Bring: Optional: Bring ideas for content like a poem, riddle, saying, collage, or short story. However this workshop is structured so that students can also just dive in on the day and see how the materials inspire them. 

Workshop Fee (includes $15 materials fee): $155.00
