Tunnel books were first created in the 19th century as souvenir items for important historic events or to display scenery from attractions around the world. This format is now used by contemporary book artists who explore their own artistic visions and personal messages in a unique structure..
Techniques will we cover:
A tunnel book uses a window to peep into “pages” or cut paper scenes hinged on two accordion folds. The emphasis in this workshop is on fun, experimentation and creativity. Students will make tunnel books from coloured paper and personal drawings.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
- Understand creative use of paper folding
