Hardcore Petal-Fold Book

with Erica Spitzer Rasmussen
Thursday, July 6; 6–9pm CT

Inspired by origami folding techniques, learn how to make a 4 x 4 inch petal-fold book, covered with decorative Japanese paper. Participants will also have the opportunity to explore variations on this book form by modifying the shape of the page and by attaching the sheets in different configurations. The petal-fold book is a nonlinear book format that can be read from multiple vantage points depending on how the reader engages with it. This creates exciting opportunities when arranging text and imagery, which will be discussed further during this in-person workshop.
