Introduction to Folded Books Workshop
Past Event

Learn how to create three dynamic book structures, all from a single sheet of paper. We’ll experiment with x-books, snake folds, and star booklet pop-ups and personalize these core structures through drawing, stamping, collage, text, and thread.

Everyone can make a book in this introductory workshop! Single page folded books are accessible to all ages and abilities and are totally punk rock. Make a zine and publish it! Make one per day and use it as your calendar and diary. The options are endless. PLUS this makes a great introduction to our intermediate workshop in May, featuring relief printing with linoleum.
