In this class we will create  folded books that require no adhesive. Many of the forms can be made  from a single sheet of paper. One of the pieces we'll be making can be used as either a book cover or as a signature in a sewn book, and other pieces include hidden pockets. Structures include the Blizzard Book, Fishbone Binding, and Diagonal Pocket Folder. Each  participant will leave class with a completed set of 6 books and a basic knowledge of folding and bookbinding technique. You will receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials in your material kit.  Experience in origami is helpful, but not required. 

Material kits will be sent out by the instructor.
