Grace Mendez Mixed Media Meandering Book

Meandering Book

I love working on paper and a meandering book fits right into that category.

These folded books are easy to make – no sewing involved and can be as complex or as simple as you want to make them.
I will be holding a workshop in Alameda at Frank Bette Center for the Arts where you can create one.

More details for the workshop

Once the meandering book is made, you can use whatever media you prefer:

  • Collage
  • Watercolor
  • Colored pencil
  • Ink
  • Acrylic
  • Pastel
  • Crayon
  • Graphite
  • Or my favorite, a mix of all of them, aka, mixed-media.

If you want to see a meandering book in action, check out the sneak-peak video below.

My book is still in progress with lots of room to add more art.

The one we will make in the workshop is a perfect size for work on the go and the larger spreads that open up are fun to work on.

The other day I handed my work-in-progress to my husband to look through. As he flipped and folded it and tried to make sense of it, it struck me that life is similar.

I often try to make sense of it.

I want to go from point A to point B, yet I am met with new challenges. New paths unfold and others are blocked.
