An Online Workshop!

Thursday, May 12, 6pm-9pm ET via Zoom


About this Workshop:

A simple, single sheet of paper contains infinite possibilities, and in this workshop we will learn a variety of structures created by simply folding and cutting. While some structures mimic and are informed by the traditional codex, others contain the potential to become sculptural objects. In this virtual workshop, we will begin with simple foundational structures and move into alterations and modifications. By the end of the workshop students will have a variety of basic Single Sheet Book models and the knowledge to experiment with new structures of their own.

Level: All levels welcome – no previous experience necessary!

Registration extended to May 5, 2022. With your registration confirmation you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any initial handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” guide to using the Zoom video app.

Please Note: The online session will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic’s private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded. Access to the recording(s) will be made available to all participants for a limited time.

CLASS MATERIALS LIST:

At registration, students will receive the full materials list (with any helpful links) to purchase supplies. The list includes:

  • Bonefolder
  • Pencil
  • Scissors OR an X-acto knife and cutting mat
  • 15 sheets, 8.5” x 11” text weight paper (any paper thin enough to fold – example provided at registration)

Notes About Paper: Text weight paper can be any paper thin enough to fold. Copy paper or origami paper can be used, but something just slightly heavier is suggested. A good option is the Astro Bright line by Neenah paper, available at Staples, Target, Dick Blick or Amazon. They come in a variety of colors and in different thicknesses. The Medium (89gsm)  in 8.5″ x 11″ sheets will work great for this class. You can also cut down larger sheets of colored or decorative paper, as long as they can be folded in both directions.
