Map Folds: More Than What Meets the Eye

with Laurel Jedamus
Tuesday, August 17; 4:30–6:30pm CT

A map fold is a large sheet of paper that gracefully collapses, when folded, into a book. Map folds are an ingenious way to include a larger map, image, or artwork into a book. They also offer a way to enhance a simple book structure with a unique sculptural element.

In this virtual workshop, learn two styles of map folds: a Turkish map fold and a Hungarian map fold. Then, learn methods for including them in a simple pamphlet stitch book.

All skill levels welcome!
Certificate: 2 hours, Category B or D
