Let’s Play with Paper: Three Folded Book Forms

This session will share three folded book forms that calligraphers can use to showcase their work.  Laura will share basic forms and discuss the wide variety of ways participants can adapt and personalize to to meet their own desires.  She encourages participants to bring a couple of sheets of paper (paste paper, former practice sheets, etc.) they’d like to fold in both square and oblong paper shapes of any size.  She’ll also have some practice papers to play with.  She will bring many examples of her other book arts work to inspire further explorations for her calligraphy community.  Let’s play with paper.
