Book and Frame Making Workshop

Open Workshop: Book and Frame Making
May 19th, 3:30-6pm
Location: Franklin Art Center

Tell your friends -Open workshop means everyone is welcome - you don't need to know a thing about Zentangle to come to this class!
(although there is a Beginner Workshop at 1-3pm on the same day directly preceding this class for those who would like to make an afternoon of it and learn Zentangle first followed by a short break and then this workshop...) 

So where do you keep all your tiles, where do you display your current favorites? And wouldn't it be nice to have all your personal favorite tangles all together in one place? For non-tangling friends what could you do with your own personally handmade book and frame? Photos, art, journaling?

Using high quality bookmaking materials and papers, this class will teach you bookmaking skills and techniques to make a portfolio frame (see below) and these beautiful little concertina books. Both sides of the concertina pages are usable, so for tangling friends you can put your tangles on one side... 

...and store and display your tiles on the other side...

For display it can also sit on a desktop like this and you can flip through them like a rolodex :)

Our second book structure in this class will be a 'portfolio frame' and we will learn how to make neat  and professional inside corners and how to determine the correct spine width for a book structure.

This two and a half hour workshop is $40 including all materials for making the concertina book and portfolio frame. Places for this workshop will go fast... call or email me to sign up now!
