The November Tunnel Book workshop will be taught by Lara Cox. Tunnel books are fun to make and offer endless possibilities for design. They can feature a variety of themes, from telling a story to simple images or very complex sculptural designs. They are constructed in such a way that when you look through them, it gives the effect of looking at a 3-D landscape. They can have just a few "pages" or several. Use your imagination!
