Fall 2018 Workshop: “Concertina Star Tunnel Book” with Elizabeth Walsh

Date: November 10, 2018
Time: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Location: Trinity Baptist Church, Renton, WA

The Concertina Star Tunnel Book format was originally inspired by Shereen LaPlantz when I attended a weekend bookbinding workshop on Whidbey Island in 1996. To personalize this book, Elizabeth has redesigned the format considerably, added calligraphy throughout and a piano-hinge spine closure.

In this one day workshop, we will create five 3-panel star tunnel signatures using Canson Mi-Tientes paper for the main surface, will attach each signature to a narrow concertina, bind the fore edges with skewers and rubber bands, and finally complete the book with piano-hinged covers! It may sound complex, but with my instructional handouts and by taking one step at a time, it is actually easier than it may seem, so please sign up and take the challenge!
