Artists’ Book & Bookbinding. Pop-up Books

Saturday 5 August 2023
10am – 5pm

An intensive 6-hour workshop with Alessia De Bortoli

This immersive workshop is centered on three-dimensional books created with folds and pop-ups. We will show a few artist books from the Scuola’s collection to provide examples and inspiration. We will then teach you how to create a leporello, or accordion book, with cuts, folds and colored paper.

With the help of their hands, a pair of scissors, and a little ingenuity, the participants will be guided in making the folds and cuts of the pop-up and invited to experiment with new possibilities for varying the shape and decorating the paper.
