About this Workshop:

Join us for this fun Make+Take, where you’ll learn to make a concertina—an accordion fold book with a book cloth-wrapped hardcover—that can then be used as a mini mixed media sketchbook.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes February 8, 2023 and includes all materials.

Anne Barnes is an artist and graphic designer living in Washington, DC. She graduated in June 2020 with an MFA in Visual Arts and worked for many years as a book and cover designer in publishing. Her mixed media work—which includes the use of books as medium and the production of artist’s books—combines a high-keyed color palette, expressive gesture, and symbolic mark-making. The result is the abstracted visualizations of her memories, emotions, and varied perspectives that merge to become metaphors for exploration into themes of human nature, popular culture, feminism, and motherhood. Learn more about her work at www.annebarnesstudio.com and on Instagram @annebarnes_studio.
