In this class, we will take the first steps into the craft of bookbinding with bonefolder and teflon folder.
Both tools are bookbinder’s most foundational tools and we will practice how to fold papers precisely.
First, we will make an envelope and then ’square to square’ card and ’Turkish map fold’ card.
I’ll bring papers from Japan and we will show how rich the possibilities and developments folding out of
a single sheet of paper. These samples can be used for greeting and invitation cards.
