The sculptural kinetic book is a very flexible format using origami folding and altered book collage to create a book form that springs into a geometric circle shape. This multi-layered book showcases the beautiful papers and collage book pages used to create it!
In this workshop, we’ll start with learning the fundamentals of kinetic books, including history of the exploding map fold, as well as a look at instructor’s private collections as inspiration. After that is the fold-a-thon! We’ll teach you the map fold so you can fold your own kinetic book.
We’ll provide all source materials and books to find your collage elements! You can also choose to bring your own found materials, imagery and/or book you would love to rework into an altered collaged art book. Participants will leave this workshop with a sample book of their own design and detailed instructions to make more at home!
