Panorama Concertina with Alicia Bailey
July 8, 10:00 am-4:00 pm
A panorama is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space. This structure, designed by Hedi Kyle, allows for the depiction of space and movement over a series of panels that can turn as the book is read or displayed. It is a perfect structure for presenting landscapes or narratives.
We will begin with a series of quick ideation exercises to generate content (whether written, visual or a combination of both), then each student will make a multi-panel book with hard covers. This class is suitable for all skill levels, ages 16 and older. No experience required. Instructor provides all materials. This is a 1-day (6 working hours) adult workshop. Registered students will be contacted ahead of time with a list of optional supplies to bring to class. Registration is $125 plus a material fee of $15 per student.
