Folded Greetings & Other Surprises

with Mary Leikvold
Thursdays: November 12, 19; 7–9pm CST

Make little structures, envelopes, and other folded treats to give as holiday gifts or to use for ordinary and special occasions. On the first night, learn two folded paper structures that can be embellished and can hold written notes or drawings—a spiral fold that becomes a flower-like object and an elegant packet that unfolds to reveal a writing surface within.

On the second night, explore pop-ups! Learn basic techniques for pop ups, including how to use them in cards and books.

Certificate: 4 hours, Category D

*We are offering a reduced rate to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participants to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom this does not apply, register at the rate listed first and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make reduced rates available.

What you’ll need to participate: For this participatory virtual workshop we recommend you join on a laptop or desktop computer with a microphone, if possible. A camera is optional. You will receive step-by-step instructions for downloading Zoom (it’s free!) and accessing the workshop online approximately 2 days before the workshop’s start date. You are responsible for sourcing your own supplies from the materials list. Teaching artists will answer questions about the materials list in advance of the workshop.

This workshop is full. Add your name to the wait list and you’ll be contacted if another section of the workshop is scheduled.
