About this Event:
In this fun workshop, we will create a unique concertina journal with 3 signatures.
The term leporello refers to printed material folded into an accordion-pleat style. Also sometimes known as a concertina fold, it is a method of parallel folding with the folds alternating between front and back.
The name likely comes from the
manservant, Leporello, in Mozart's opera Don Giovanni. At one point in the
opera, Leporello unfolds a lengthy concertina list of his conquests.
In the Victorian era, leporellos were quite commonly used as travel souvenirs, depicting beautiful, panoramic scenes of the places travelers had just seen, customs and culture of the region and the like.
This style of journal lends itself to so many different uses! Use yours as a travel journal, a keepsake book, a gift for someone, a child or grandchild's storybook.
Please join me for a fun workshop, suitable for all levels of experience.
