Carousel Book Workshop May 12 - 13 10:00AM - 4:00PM Instructed by Carol Barton Have you ever been interested in creating books that double as paper sculptures or sculptures that are truly books? A "carousel" or "star" book consists of several accordion-fold sheets bound together to create dimensional stage-like pages. In this workshop you will learn the basics of constructing this book form, plus new ways to compose pages and bind the book with tabs. You should bring images or collage materials to use in creating a visual story as you develop layered imagery around a theme or text. The workshop will allow you to explore the exciting possibilities for adapting this format to your personal creative style. Historical and contemporary examples of the carousel book will be presented in a slide show so that you can design and create based on a solid foundation of knowledge. No experience [is] necessary. This is a great workshop if you are a teacher, book artists, graphic designer or someone wanting to spend a productive and creative weekend with us here at the Morgan.
