The art of folding books is a meditative and cathartic process. Students will learn the basics of folding, scoring and repetition that leads to a successful folded book. All students should bring a few hardbound books to fold. Please do not bring a dictionary, a thick book or a religious text as they have very thin paper. Students will start with a book and leave with a sculptural work of art. Elizabeth Goodwill will also talk about ways to embellish, decorate and display finished folded books. Remember this is not book destruction. We are not destroying books but giving them an additional purpose in our lives.
Supply List: Students need to bring mechanical pencil, a bone folder or dull knife or spoon, a clear flexible ruler (I use the quilting ones), notebook notes, and a few hardcover books to fold (book pages should be test weight, not newsprint that do not crack when folded). Go to Goodwill or the library bookstore to find a few you like. Please do not bring a book with a loose spine, binding or paperbacks.
Elizabeth Goodwill has an MFA from New Mexico State University in printmaking and book art. She is the Education Director at Art Center Sarasota and an exhibiting artist.
