5-PANEL SCREEN STRUCTURE
with Connie Stricks
Sunday, May 16, 2021 – 10-noon and 1-3pm
Instructional fee: $50 (includes materials)
This workshop introduces the 5-panel screen structure, a double-sided board book which displays well, can be easily scaled to different sizes, and folds flat for storage. In class we will make an 8 x 6” screen, covering its panels with paper, and creating paper hinges that allow the screen to open and close. This structure is a good way to hone your measuring and gluing skills. Although there may not be time to embellish your screen in class, techniques and considerations for adding imagery will be discussed and examples shown, and you will leave with a screen ready for your finishing touches. Some experience in bookmaking recommended. Materials will be available for pick up at the NBG Studio, Wednesday, May 12, noon-2pm.

CONCERTINA ALBUM
with Margo Klass
Sunday, May 23, 2021 – 10-noon and 1-3pm
Instructional fee: $50 (includes materials)
The concertina album binding elegantly holds a collection of photos or other images. It looks like a traditional book, but opens out for display. In this workshop we’ll learn how to fold and hinge lengths of paper to make accordion-folded panels, cover boards with book cloth, inset a cover plate, and join text block to cover structure. Finally, we will discuss methods of adding images to the album. Some experience in bookmaking recommended. Materials and instructional guidelines will be available for pick up at the NBG Studio, Wednesday, May 19, noon-2pm.
