Mixed Media Flag Book

with Rosemary Rae
Tuesday, April 2; 6–9pm CT

Create a small, double-sided flag book! These mini flag books are a fun way to make creative structures using royalty-free images, photographs, ephemera, rubber-stamped images, or any other art you’d like to showcase. This virtual workshop is perfect for anyone excited to explore a new twist on the flag book. Originally created by Hedi Kyle, the flag book features panels that cross each other when the book opens and closes.

Participants will benefit from an understanding of grain direction and how to cover book board in decorative paper or fabric with glue. The ability to score, fold, and cut paper and board are also helpful skills to have in this workshop.

For individuals to whom these scholarships do not apply, register at the Adult rate and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make scholarships available.
