Flag and Tunnel Books

with Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder
Thursdays: February 3, 10; 7:30–9pm CT

Explore depth and perspective while learning to create two different expandable book structures in this virtual workshop. The flag book has an expandable spine with layers of paper “flags” that pop out, making it a delightful structure for evoking movement and action. Tunnel books, also known as “peep show” books, expand for a dramatic three-dimensional effect through layered cut-out panels. Participants will complete a finished book of both structures, plus models and ideas for variations.

All skill levels welcome
