Hinged Metal Books

$ 180  


Bang, Bam, Oh Wow! Hinged metal books and their wonderful metal pages

During this workshop attendees will make an artist book that is crazy-unique!
Hammering soft, up-cycled metal into pages, and using actual hinges to “bind” the pages together, the results are attention-grabbing at its very best.
Techniques you learn include:
• “Forging” without the heat
• Mixed-media assemblage
• What can constitute an embellishment (hint: it is if you say it is)
• At least 3 ways to add embellishments to the book that don’t involve glue

Crop-A-Dile hole and eyelet punch
