In this three session workshop we will use mixed media collage to create 3 or 4 different book-like structures that allow you to create a 3 dimensional world inside a book. The tunnel book, the toy-like diorama and 2 single sheet books with stand up worlds within.

Supplies and Tools to have:

  • x-acto knife with blades 
  • dull knife, like a steak knife (something you have in a kitchen drawer)
  • metal ruler 18” minimum
  • Cutting surface, self-healing mats are good 
  • Bone folder
  • Scissors
  • small bottle of Elmer’s white Glue-All (usually available at grocery stores) or PVA or glue stick
  • waste paper- like a few brown bags or newsprint
  • ½” –flat bristle paint brush for glue (something inexpensive from a hardware store would work)
  • Clothespins come in handy
  • 4 single sheets of Canson Mi-Tientes (Dick Blick A10710- and then choose 4 of the same color or 4 different colors or 2 and 2 , etc. ) 
  • And a small (approx.. 9 x 12 “) tablet of Bristol board (Dick Blick C13307-1003)- if you have some already whatever size will work.
