This beautiful, three-dimensional book is sure to capture the imagination! Don’t let this book’s appearance fool you – it’s much easier to create than it looks.
In this workshop, participants will create a star book made from layers of paper and collage materials. The book opens up completely to form a star shape when the covers are held back-to-back. You can use the attached ribbon ties to secure the book when open or closed.
In this workshop, each participant will leave class with a completed book and a basic knowledge of bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. No previous experience required – this is a great class for all skill levels. Non-artists, teachers, photographers, and all creative types are welcome!

All materials are included in the workshop fee, but feel free to bring materials for use in creating a theme/concept for the book.
Some ideas:
Collage materials – small bits of handmade paper, fabric, fibers, etc.
Rubber stamps and pads
Markers, pens, colored pencils, etc.
Decorative scissors/punches
