The aim of this workshop is the realisation of a very clever kind of album. When it is closed it looks like an ordinary album but it can be transformed into a three-dimensional object which shows a sequence of images in a circular display.

This structure, devised by Carmencho Arregui in the nineties, will offer the participants the opportunity to learn how to measure, hand crease, sew and use the structural elements also as decoration.

Careful planning is needed prior to the making of this album. To adapt the inside to their needs the participants will be working both with the structure and the contents. They will receive precise directions as to what kind of images they should use (calligraphy, photography, or graphic material).

What is really interesting about it is that this structure offers the possibility of looking at a substantial group of images all in one go.
