Fold Books – 10 Variations on a Theme


Folded papers and books have been around since ancient times.  With single sheets of paper, a bone folder, your hands and your imagination come explore a cornucopia of unique folded designs.  These pieces of paper will blossom into effective pieces to communicate your message and art.  This spirited hands-on workshop will guide you through at least ten fun, folded designs to use for books, cards, altered books and journals, brochures, invitations, and more.  The book covers will be made of polymer clay and embellished with an assortment of polymer clay techniques.
 



Saturday, February 1st from  9 AM to 5  PM. 

Sculptural Books, Tryptychs, and Standing Screens

In this workshop we will explore the three-dimensional world of sculptural books, triptychs and standing screens.  Using polymer clay, papers, fabric, and personal treasures, we’ll create and layer images and text to tell a story, evoke a mood, or simply create something beautiful. Polymer clay techniques will include transfers, layering and collaging with translucent clays, several surface techniques and the successful integration of mixed media with polymer clay.  We will bind the sculptural books with a text block of unusual papers. Triptychs and screens will be hinged and can be used as luminescent candle screens, wall pieces or standing sculptures. Leave the workshop with fresh ideas and techniques to incorporate into your personal style.
