Woven Accordion Window Book

with Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder
Tuesdays: November 2, 9; 7–8:30pm CT

Elevate your accordions through dynamic depth and movement! This deceptively simple structure expands to create a dramatic three-dimensional effect with layered cut-out windows. This workshop includes a materials kit to create a model of the structure and is suitable for beginners, though you will need a few tools (listed below). Learn tips and tricks for folding “the best” accordion, how to cut out windows, sew a basic book, and create a removable cover, plus instruction on how to alter or scale the design for your future projects.
