Bindery Core Class - Focus on Folding
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
Folding paper accurately is key to creating a well-made book. In this class we will cover paper folding for use in both sewn and accordion-style books. Accordion books can be displayed open with multiple pages and folded down compactly for storage. In addition to learning about paper, grain direction, and folding methods, we will create some variations of accordion fold books and examine a variety of others that build off of the fold.
