Practical Origami Workshop with Bill Hanscom

June 10, 2012, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Held at:  The Library Company of Philadelphia
1314 Locust Street, Philadelphia, 19107

Participants will learn to transform simple sheets of paper into a variety of books, envelopes, folders, boxes and other useful objects through the art of paper folding. Using a simple set of tools, we will manipulate paper (with the occasional cut & and rarely adhesive) into elegantly simple and dynamically functional objects. Participants will have the opportunity to work with many different papers as well as less conventional materials such as Tyvek®.
