On Tuesdays, Aug. 18 and 25, the Farnsworth Art Museum hosts a two-day online workshop entitled "Making an Artist’s Book Using Leporello Binding." The workshop, led by illustrator and book artist Elizabeth Ogle, will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Zoom.

Join Ogle to create and decorate a concertina book using the Leporello binding style. This unusual binding is created by attaching folded page spreads back-to-back to create a continuous accordion shape. Over the course of two sessions, attendees will create and decorate a hardcover artist’s book of their own. Previous bookmaking experience is recommended but not required.

Ogle is a professional freelance illustrator and book artist. She holds a BFA in illustration with a minor in creative writing from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she was a recipient of the Illustration Departmental Honors and the Illustration Faculty Choice Award. She has held two teaching assistantships, one in introductory drawing, and one in book arts. Her work has been featured in the November 2019 issue of Artists Magazine and has been exhibited at the Portland Museum of Art, Boston Symphony Hall, and various galleries.

The fee for this program is $72; $60 for Farnsworth members. To register for this program, or for more information, please visit farnsworthmuseum.org.
