In this workshop, instructor Carrie Valenzuela will show participants how to create their own version of this marvelous toy in book form. Also known as a Chinese wallet among other names, this fascinating structure is referenced in ancient works dating from 1502 and has been produced in various versions since then. We will explore how the mechanics work, decide which materials to use, and manipulate the content of visible and hidden flipping panels. Get ready for dazzling fun and engineering with all the possibilities!

All materials will be included and participants may bring their own special materials as well. Learn more about Carrie Valenzuela, proprietor of Amaranth Press And Bindery and Salt City Book Arts.
