Folding time and paper

Art of the Fold book cover

Hi, everyone! We had a technical difficulty last week which resulted in the FIT Library closing suddenly on Friday. We apologize for the inconvenience and the lack of a post. But we didn’t forget you and we will have more for you this week.

To carry you over, I thought you might be interested in this great new book we have. This book of elaborate folded paper techniques. The authors, mother-daughter team, Hedi Kyle and Ulla Warchol, gave a workshop in the library’s new Art Resources Lab last Thursday. Here are some pics of the workshop so you can see what people made.

The book and the workshop taught advanced uses of folding (beyond origami) to make quirky notebooks, envelopes, gifts, and holders. FIT students, faculty and staff filled the program to brimming, and everyone learned to make cool things.

This was one of the best attended programs in our new maker space so far. If you couldn’t make it, we do have a copy of the book in the library:

You can find independent bookstores from which to purchase the book at the authors’ website:
