Learn how to make your own accordion book!

In two workshops by Falls Village artist Rika Laser, explore how you can use a simple book structure to create a narrative that explores the relationship between place and identity.

Attendees will begin filling the pages of their book using traditional art supplies, and techniques including illustration, collage, mapping, written word, and more. Bring a short poem or saying that you would like to illustrate with mixed media, or a theme you’d like to explore.

Beginners are welcome and all materials will be provided. This event is made free to the public through the support of the CT Office of the Arts and is open to all. Space is limited so please register in advance.

These events are offered by the Falls Village Equity Project, in collaboration with artist, Rika Laser, who has received a grant to paint an art crosswalk in June and to host a series of bookmaking workshops free to the public in May.

To inform and influence the design and planning efforts for the art crosswalk, Laser has developed and printed a fun Falls Village Workbook that is now available at the D.M. Hunt Library. To download the Falls Village Workbook online, visit https://www.fallsvillageartcrosswalk.org/workbook
