Practical Origami

August 6, 2011, 9:00am - 5:00pm

Participants will learn to transform simple sheets of paper into a variety of books, envelopes, folders, boxes and other useful objects through the art of paperfolding. Using a simple set of tools, we will manipulate paper (with the occasional cut & and rarely adhesive) into elegantly simple and dynamically functional objects. Participants will have the opportunity to work with many different papers as well as less conventional materials such as Tyvek®.

Required tools: bone folder, utility knife, 12" steel ruler, 12 x 18" self-healing cutting mat, & pencil.

Fee: $220 (Simmons GSLIS Alumni Price $175)

Location: Boston
