Paper Folding Techniques for Calligraphers and Designers

Paper Folding Techniques for Calligraphers and Designers – 1JB1
Jim Ballard

In this class, you will learn how to take sheets of paper and create a variety of pleats and free-form folding patterns to transform the sheets into expressive, 3D designs. It will show you how to produce 3D backdrops for calligraphy, ink markings and asemic (wordless) forms of writing. In minutes, you will be able to create complex and beautiful forms using only a few tools and folds. Keep in mind that this session will not show you how to make origami figures like flowers, insects or animals.
