Fairbanks artist Margot Klass, currently an exhibiting artist at the Alaska State Museum, will lead a workshop in 3-D bookmaking this Saturday for middle and high school students. Klass will lead students in creating their own four-frame, three-dimensional telescoping books, also known as tunnel books. The workshop runs from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Alaska State Museum.
Klass’ solo show, “An Alaskan Book of Hours,” opened March 23, and will be celebrated with a reception on First Friday beginning at 4:30 p.m. Klass will be present at the opening. Her show features a series of her “box constructions,” which she creates from found and natural objects. Klass also has several pieces on display at the Earth Fire Fibre exhibit, also currently on display at the museum.
“Tunnel Books” is a free workshop; pre-register by calling the Museum at 465-2901, Monday-Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m..
