About the Workshop:
This virtual class at Center for Book Arts is taught by instructor Paula Krieg.
Edge-release structures are a world of simple, smart folding that go from flat to sculptural with a single opening motion, existing in a space somewhere between pop-ups and architecture. This introduction to edge-release begins with generic templates shared by Paul Jackson. We will then move into understanding the logic underpinning various kinds of cut and fold methods, with the intent to experiment with cut-outs, add-ons, hinging and ways of creating unique variations of within the parameters of each structure.
The optical confusion of edge-release folds is where their charms reside. Fronts, backs, and interior spaces intermingle. The possibilities for adding content, and personalizing in unusual ways is literally limitless and can be dramatic and theatrical. These forms are invite interaction which can be small enough to slide into an envelope or large enough to dance through.
