The Midwest Collage Society (MCS), founded in 2003, promotes collage as a fine art by providing exhibit opportunities and professional development activities to our 52 members.
Meetings are held at 1710 Plainfield Road, Darien IL, usually the first Sunday of the month from 12:30-2:30pm. No meetings in January and July unless otherwise posted.
Midwest Collage Society celebrates over 100 years of Collage As a Fine Art since 1912.

members will cut out images and use them in the layers of this tunnel book.
Images should not be larger than 4-6 inches tall and 1-3 inches wide.
A good variety of sizes works best.

Ginni, starts us off with measuring the side accordion folds that will house the sections. She suggest that you pick a double printed paper because you would see the inside and it might be nice to have it work with the section.
We had a great crowd of members...this was half of them there. We had four new members join.
Fold one way and then fold back the other way and Ginni suggested that we fold individually instead of piling it up it will make it wonky.
Quick look at how the folds will go but you will need to complete the whole sheet. The fold is 3/4" all the way through the whole sheet...Accordion effect is what we want.
Ginni is designing her section that will be one of four created today. Glues down the collage papers...I think at this point Nancy Carter ask...who invited the Tunnel Book...well here's some info What is a tunnel book.
Tracing over the shapes from the first sections so not to cover them up when viewing..
Second section...Ginni is eyeing things up so not to block the view of the objects and item behind.
Our Joan, is explaining things to her collage neighbor but you can see she's got some folds going there.
One of our members....checking her measurements...
Mary Ann has her's fold and gluing the middle sections in all ready.
One of our members getting read to cut the papers.
Here's a look at the book from the top so you can see the way the accordion side are glued to the middle section.
