The Potomac Chapter is excited to announce their next workshop, The Tunnel
Book, taught by Alice Austin.  The tunnel book sets a stage by enticing the
viewer to look through expanding layers or scenes. In this one day class
students will make two models to explore and understand the physical
expansion of the concertina side panels. We will also construct a cover to
attach to one of our books. Materials will be provided for the books but
students should bring postcards, drawings, prints, photographs or other
collage material that they would like to cut up and incorporate in their
books. We will make our own rubber stamp from an eraser but bring a few of
your favorite art supplies to personalize your books.

*When:*  Saturday, June 13th.  9:00-5:00

*Where:*  Folger Shakespeare Library, Werner Gundersheimer Conservation

*Cost:*  $100 for members, $125 for non-members plus a materials fee paid
directly to the instructor

*To reserve a spot,* RSVP to gbwpotomacchapter at gmail.com
