It’s been quite a year and here’s an opportunity to wrangle some of the craziness into a scary little book. Find out how to create a “haunted village” using an accordion book structure with some playful pop-ups. This format is ideal for incorporating Halloween or Dia de los Muertos imagery which can be added with collage, stamping, ink, paint and cut outs. Make it as scary, funny, political or dystopian as you like, this Zoom class is a safe space to process your 2020 experience so far!

Beginners are welcome; be aware that class will move briskly.
