Explore the art of tunnel books at VAC
Get ready to take a trip down the rabbit hole in an adventurous tunnel bookbinding workshop where your imagination is your only limit.
A tunnel book is made with pages bound by accordion folds on both sides. It is “read” through a hole in the cover and a cutout in each page, allowing all pages to be seen at once, front to back.
This creates an illusion of depth and perception. The images on each page work together to form a 3-D scene inside the book that helps to tell a story.
Join instructor Charlene Asato from 9 a.m.-noon March 25 for the “Exploring Tunnel Books” bookbinding workshop at Volcano Art Center Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village.
Cost is $35 or $32 for VAC members plus a $10 materials fee. Prior bookbinding experience is not necessary.
Tools to bring include a cutting mat or dense cardboard, X-Acto knife with new No. 11 blade or similar tool, metal-edged ruler, bone folder or nonserrated butter knife, pencil, eraser, glue stick and scissors.
Optional tools and materials include a scoring board, paper trimmer, double-sided tape, colored pencils, markers, watercolor, rubber stamps and ink pads, large punches — hearts, flowers, butterfly, balloon, shapes, etc.
