Folding for Design with Kate Colin
August 21st 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm£65
This course is for anyone wishing to learn how to transform a sheet of paper into a range of three dimensional forms. It is advisable that participants have taken the ‘Introduction to Paper Folding’ class first, but not essential.
We won’t be making products in this class but you will learn a variety of techniques and designs which you can experiment with and apply to your own practice or discipline.
During the workshop you will be introduced to linear, diagonal and angular divisions, flat pleats, herringbone pleats and folded parabolas.
We will also look briefly at the history of folding and at the work of several folding artists and examine how the art form is used in fashion, architecture and contemporary design.
All participants will receive a confirmation email and a link to a live workshop via Zoom GMT on the date you’ve selected. A kit will be posted out to you about a week before the course takes place
The kit comes in a sturdy box and contains a collection of high quality tools, a fabric drawstring bag and enough pre-cut paper for all the exercises during the class (content may vary from the image)
Spaces limited to 10 people to allow time for individual discussion and interaction
Shipping of the kit is free for UK but there’ll be extra surcharge will be applied for overseas
