Learn to make books that fold and flex in unexpected ways to reveal hidden panels and secret images! Fold books that pop up and explode when opened! Make unique artist books, zines, promotional material or gifts! Impress your friends and loved ones! In this one day workshop, book artist Rachel Curry will introduce students to several non – adhesive folded book structures with magical, mathematical, and mystifying mechanics. This workshop is perfect for artists, writers, and anyone with a curious and creative spirit!
Rachel Curry is an artist from Los Angeles with a focus on bookbinding and printmaking. She studied book arts in New York City and currently works at The Church of Type, one of the city’s only authentic working Letterpress shops! Rachel is passionate about sharing her knowledge through art education in after school programs for kids and one day adult workshops around the city.
While most WCCW programming is free or donation-based, with no one turned away for lack of funds, we do offer some workshops that have fees associated. This covers materials and allows us to pay the leaders of these workshops for their time and expertise, and to put a small percentage back into WCCW. This income, in addition to memberships, is what lets us keep the doors open and the lights on. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested though, so we also offer volunteer opportunities and free community tickets to each event or workshop (number varies depending on capacity of the class). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to find out more about this opportunity for a specific event.
