Paper Boxes and Storage Books Workshop with Amanda D’Amico

September 23, 2017
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free Library of Philadelphia, Parkway Central

The Masu Box is a simple origami structure made of paper. This square box can be used to wrap gifts or store objects, but it can also be adapted with simple bookbinding techniques to make sculptural book objects. In this workshop, we will begin with a box and a lid, and we will play with these paper elements to create books that can house images or small objects and be explored by hand.

Materials will be supplied and tools will be available for use by participants, but if you have a bone folder of your own, please bring it along with you to the workshop.
