Gallery Assistant Asiya Hussain shows you how to make a concertina book, inspired by Liz Orton’s book Herbarium of Extinction, shown in the exhibition Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature.

In the exhibition Seedscapes, five artists explore global efforts to save vital plants from going extinct. Each artist looks at how important seeds are to us, such as providing us with food and medicines.

This activity is suitable for ages 7+.

All you need is: a piece of A3 paper, scissors, a ruler, a pencil, glue stick and decorative paper (optional).

One you’ve made your concertina book, you can add your own photos, writing, drawings – whatever you like. We’d love to see your concertina books! Share your creation and tag us on social media:
