Split-Page Books

with Yuka Petz
Wednesday: August 19, 6-9pm CDT

Also known as mix-and-match books, split-page books are simple, yet compelling structures that encourage lots of hands-on engagement.

In this workshop, we will examine a variety of artist-made and commercially printed examples and then make our own folded and sewn variations of split-page books. We will also discuss creating split-page books in collaboration with adults and children, and how to structure content to create cohesive books that retain the play of chance operations. Participants will also have the option to collaborate on a split-page book with other class members, to be completed after the workshop.

Certificate: 3 hours, Category D

For individuals to whom this does not apply, register at the rate listed first and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make reduced rates available.

Participants are responsible for sourcing their own supplies from the materials list. Teaching artists will answer questions about materials in advance of the workshop start date.
