This is an in-person workshop. As of January 2023, masks are strongly encouraged but not required unless otherwise indicated.
Developed in the Renaissance for studying perspective, the tunnel book is sometimes called a 'peephole book.' It is truly an adapted accordion with multiple panels bound on both sides, to be viewed from the front giving it a 3-D effect.
Students will collage the various layers out of their own postcards and photos to create a unique and personalized book. After attaching the pages to the accordion fold that holds them, the tunnel book will be glued into a simple cover for a more finished look.
>> Prerequisite: None <<
Materials to Bring: Several postcards (landscape orientation), old pictures, and/or magazines to cut up for images.
Date & Time: Sunday, August 20, 2023 :: 9:30am-5:30pm
