Join the Fold: Origami Books
March 17, 2016
Studio Place Arts (SPA)
201 North Main Street
Feeling foldy? Then this workshop’s for you!
We’ll be playing in the intersection between origami and bookmaking, creating folded books that require no adhesive. Many of the forms can be created from a single sheet of paper. One of the pieces we’ll be making can be used as either a book cover or as a signature in a sewn book, and other pieces include hidden pockets. Structures include the Blizzard Book, Crown Binding, and the Turkish Map Fold.
In this workshop, each participant will leave class 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.
Cost: Members $30.00 / Non-Members $40.00

Supplies: Awl, bonefolder, ruler, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil, ruler, glue stick.
Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.
