Event Description:

The 18th annual Newport Paper Arts Festival offers 17 classes over the three days of April 19, 20 and 21, given by 13 instructors. 

"All the Angles – Triangle Box and Book"

Create a beautiful, equilateral triangle box with five inch sides. Construct a hinged panel with triangular sides to serve as base and lid to the box. Using decorative papers for the cover, make a triangular double hexagon accordion book that will nestle in the box. The box can be hung on the wall as a small shelf with the hinged panel hanging below, which could frame calligraphy or other art.

Skill Level: Intermediate; Class Limit: 8; Materials Fee: $20 

"All the Angles – Triangle Box and Book" is taught by Nancy Holley, a print maker, watercolorist and art process enthusiast has been a bookmaker for 15 years. Nancy is a founding member of the Rogue Valley’s informal art collective, Art Peace, which offers occasional paper art retreats and on-going exploration of creative paper design.
