FISHBONE AND TREE FOLDS

Hedi Kyle's book, The Art of the Fold, (available in the NORBAG Lending Library) provides a wealth of information and examples of some wonderful book structures. The May NORBAG workshop will feature two of those folds, the fishbone and the tree. Dianne Byington will instruct us on the difference between them and how to make them along with some variations. Some basic skills to be covered are paper folding, mountain fold, valley fold, and because of the many folds, we will review how to determine grain direction of papers to prevent cracked folds.
