Something Fishy…Flag Books!

with Laurel Herbeck

This month’s Guild activity will feature a classic accordion Flag Book. This dynamic structure, inspired by Hedi Kyle, Susan King, and others, is a fun and versatile way to incorporate a series of images, texts, photos, or collected objects in your artist books. We will look at some simple and complex examples and make a sample flag book from recycled file folders, card stock, and images from old research manuals given to the Guild by the Ichthyology Department at the Museum. Materials for the covers, accordion support, flags, and fish images will be provided.

PLEASE NOTE this meeting will be held at The Folk School!

Please bring the following:

  • Cutting mat
  • Bone folder
  • Rulers
  • Metal edges (if you have them)
  • Scissors and craft knife
  • Glue stick
  • Double stick tape (we can share)
  • Colored pencils (optional)
