Santa Fe Book Arts Group, New Mexico

Carousel Book Class, Santa Fe Book Arts GroupThis weekend involved lots of folding, folding, folding, as members of the Santa Fe Book Arts Group produced sets of accordion strips to be used in the creation of carousel books. The carousel is a multilayered accordion book that challenges artists to design three dimensionally. In the first day of the workshop, I taught participants how to construct a basic carousel book, and the second day was an open studio in which everyone jumped in and started creating the artwork for their pieces. With 15 students in the class, a wide variety of themes emerged–some literary, some personal. Here’s a view of some of the results.
