Elevate your accordions through dynamic depth and movement with the Woven Accordion Window book. This deceptively simple structure expands to create a dramatic three-dimensional effect with layered cut-out windows. This workshop includes a materials kit to create a model of the structure and is suitable for all levels (even beginners). You will learn tips and tricks for folding “the best” accordion, how to cut out windows, basic book sewing, creating a removable cover, plus instruction on how to alter or scale the design for your future projects.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Tablet or computer with internet connection • X-Acto knife or scalpel, plus extra blades • bone folder (bone or Teflon) • metal ruler, at least 18” • triangle, at least 6” • awl or needle tool • self-healing cutting mat
Keri will mail you a kit, as well, containing the rest of the necessary supplies. For this reason, registration for this workshop closes Thursday June 10 at 4 PM Eastern Daylight Time.
