Description

Flag books have wonderful sculptural possibilities. With multiple angles of view, they provide interesting double narrative potentials, contrasting viewpoints, or “yin and yang”, if you will. Viewers enjoy the visual movement of flag books. They beg the viewer to play and to keep interacting with the artwork. There are so many approaches to content. They're excellent for creative poetry, wish lists, sweet nothings, photographs, abstract designs, and more.

We'll cover basic adhesive skills, using both glues and adhesive transfer methods, the use of bone folders in folding, scoring, and adhesive control, and all the basic skills needed for bookmaking. There’s plenty of time for discussion about personal project ideas, hybrid possibilities, and conceptual potentials while getting it done.

Cristina's stash of hand-printed marbled and paste papers will inspire many great combinations of colors and textures. Beads, buttons, ribbons and threads will be available to complete the projects. All materials are provided along with technique handouts. All skill levels are welcome!

Materials

A $25 materials fee must be paid directly to the instructor at the beginning of the class.

About the instructor: 

Cristina Hajosy is a mixed media artist, art educator and designer based in Greater Boston. She is the owner of Hajosy Arts (hajosyarts.com), an art studio of photography, printmaking, book arts, and historical decorative arts, especially paper marbling and paste paper. She is the co-founder and president of New England Book Artists (newenglandbookartists.org), a nonprofit book arts organization that has quickly grown since 2019. Her work strives to foster understanding and personal growth through book arts via art education and the creation of beautifully challenging and personally satisfying art.  

Cristina was born in Rome, Georgia to parents who were doctors. She grew up on a cattle farm with a large catfish fishery, family garden, pecan orchards, and horses alongside private school, art classes, music lessons, and country club activities. According to Cristina, “My story is a modern-day Green Acres complete with Hungarian heritage and an amusing clash between high and low cultures. "
