Folded Forms Bookmaking Workshop
with Sha Towers
(instead of a regular meeting)
Saturday, August 12, 2017
9 - 12 noon at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Waco, Texas
$20 registration fee plus $10 materials fee
In this workshop, we'll explore several creative and innovative structures incorporating folded papers. While the focus will be on forms and structures, I think you'll find them to be wonderful vehicles to feature your lettering and visual arts and may even help you discover new ways of thinking about your art. This will be a great non-lettering class to bring a friend to!
Each attendee will produce a set of sample books during the workshop that can be used as reference and inspiration for further projects. The structures we will explore include the single-page book, the reverse hinge binding, woven accordion, and blizzard book.
Papers will be supplied for class. Please bring the following tools (if you don't have some of them, don't worry, we will have enough to share):
❖ pencil and eraser
❖ bone folder
❖ metal straight edge
❖ x-acto knife/blades
❖ cutting mat
❖ glue stick (archival, acid-free, preferred but not required)
