Flat Foldable Pleats, and Edge Release Explorations (Afternoon Session)
This workshop takes place across four sessions:
- Tues, Apr 27, 1–3pm ET
- Tues, May 4, 1–3pm ET
- Tues, May 18, 1–3pm ET
- Tues, May 25, 1–3pm ET
The afternoon and evening sessions of this workshop are identical in content. This class begins with participants examining pleated structures, which will be followed by guided folding. Our efficient workflows will result in dimensional structures that are also able to fold flat. We will follow this up with folding architectural looking structures that have cantilevering edges which have been released from the folds with strategically placed cuts.
There are a total of 12 spots open in this small-group workshop.
