Paper Arts Iris Folding Design Workshop
Led by Linda Weinbaum. Iris folding is a craft that was originally developed in Holland. It involves folding strips of colored paper in such a way as to form a design, whose center resembles the iris of an eye or camera lens. The folding is done with a pattern and any lightweight paper – such as origami paper, the inside of envelopes, gift wrap paper, thin ribbons etc. It is a good idea to have some coordinating colors. Before you throw out any envelopes look on the inside – especially the insides of envelopes from financial institutions. In order to promote security the envelopes are often printed with colorful patterned insides – these work great!!! Please register for this program online or at the reference desk.
For the class it is best to come with these materials:
· Roll of clear scotch tape – this is critical that everyone have their own roll. It is not convenient to share because this is used constantly.
· X–acto knife if you have one
· Self healing Cutting board if you have one
· Teacher will supply the patterns, directions etc.
