The half-rotation dissolve volvelle changes scene, rather than reveal information in a small window. The picture goes from one scene at rest, then dissolves into an entirely new scene as the lever is turned a one-half rotation of the circle. The construction isn’t difficult once you know the order and pattern of construction. We will use a template (provided) for the workshop, but discuss how to draw it ourselves, ideas for designs, choosing paper, and using a volvelle in a book. Our models will be reference for future volvelles.
