In this workshop, most importantly, you'll learn how to make a digital pattern that you'll use as a template for your page folding.
Next, we'll present what to look for in picking a book for sculpting with folds and how to get special effects with our tips and tricks.
Finally, you'll learn hands on how to use the template to fold the pages and sculpt your book.
Then, select a book and practice folding it into the perfect sculpture.
For this workshop you'll be using a selection of our books and a heart template for practice, then you can take home your workshop book to finish, stay and finish it or just go home and use your new skills to make any design you'd like!
