Through my Artist Residency with the Los Angles Department of Cultural Affairs Artist in Residence I had the opportunity to offer an online program/workshop via the Panorama Branch Library of the Los Angeles Public Library in which participants learned how to make “Tunnel Books“, and thus how to create their own three-dimensional stories!
Participants learned the accordion fold technique, and how to attach a background/backdrop sheet, and connective strips to create their books, reminiscent of a diorama, or stage. They then went to down developing their stories or scenes, learning a bit of pop-up magic in the process.
One motivated participant motivated by opera remade her book after the program, and emailed these images to share with us!
We look forward to more inspiring, educational, creative and FUN online bookmaking programs presented through the Panorama City Branch Library!
