If this winter is giving you the blues, here’s a reason to like it a bit more – book artist Hedi Kyle’s famous Blizzard Book was invented during a snowstorm!
This gem of a book has a spine made of folded pockets that lock pages into place without using adhesive. The folded components can be modified to create other structures that Hedi affectionately refers to as the Blizzard Clan.
In this workshop, you’ll start by making the book that started it all, the Blizzard Book. As time allows, you’ll complete up to five variations including the Blizzard Box, the Blizzard Pocket, and the amazing Wheel of Fortune. All of these structures are intended to house your choice of content – for example, business cards, ticket stubs, or fortune cookie fortunes.
You’ll leave this workshop with a completed set of books and a basic knowledge of folding and bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use.
Experience in origami is helpful, but not required.
Supplies: Awl, bone folder, metal ruler, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil, glue stick or roller adhesive. (bring them if you have them – don’t feel obligated buy anything)
Cost: $30.00 SPA members/$40.00 non-members
