Carousel Book

  • Verge Center for the Arts 625 S Street Sacramento, CA, 95811 United States (map)

Construct a carousel by creating a series of “scenes” that operate like the pages of a book. Learn how to measure and fold three accordions. Cut and collage/rubber stamps/ decorate the frames and inner pages. Then sew the three accordions together to complete the book. Once finished this book looks like five theater scenes from the side; from the top it look like a star. The form was popularized in the 1920s and 1930s as children’s books.

You may choose to purchase the bone folder, awl, and needle provided to you during class for an additional $10 on the day of class. You will need an xacto knife, ruler (yard in length preferably), and scissors. We will supply these if needed. Please also bring any collage materials, rubber stamps and stamp pads, drawing pens, or pencils you may have. There will be an hour break for lunch.
