Artist’s Leporello Book
Sat & Sun, Nov. 1 & 2, 9 am-Noon. Leporello books are constructed to create an accordion fold, which enables the book to stand upright and extend outward—and allows the viewer to examine the front and back of the book. These structural books are ideal for displaying a progression of images, a narrative or an evolution of thinking. This workshop begins with a session devoted to mapping out a visual plan and artistic strategy for a leporello book. Next, learn how to selectively crop sections of paintings, collage, drawings and original prints (including monoprints, letterpress, intaglio prints...even “failed” prints!) to create strong visuals and a sense of flow. A rewarding exercise for artists of all levels and mediums, this workshop helps you translate two-dimensional art into a compelling three-dimensional work.​
