Length of workshop: 1 day

 

Workshop description: 

The Japanese-screen structure is a form of board book that offers many possibilities for the book artist. The structure is sturdy, can be scaled up or down, and folds flat for storage. It can be variously configured to three, five, or more panels and can be constructed to accommodate both two- and three-dimensional content. Best of all, it displays easily. In this workshop we will discuss the creative uses of this structure and its variations, and then construct a basic five-panel screen using pre-cut boards and Japanese papers to learn the process of hinging and covering the panels. We will then create variations of this basic structure as models for future work.
