I’ll be teaching “Make an Accordion Book with “Pop-Up” Flower-Fold Pages: A Class for Children and their Parents” for children ages 5 to 9 accompanied by their parents. In this workshop, participants will learn bookbinding’s basic vocabulary, its fundamental tools and their uses, as well as the materials (paper and adhesives) and techniques (folding and gluing) of the craft. Children and their parents will learn how to make an accordion book with “pop-up” flower-fold pages, a beautiful and fun three-dimensional structure.
