November Workshop

Grace B. will be leading our November workshop, a four-way magic folding picture on a single sheet of paper. She says this paper trick was taught to her in 1996 by Betz Salmont. Each person will make one prototype without decoration or pictures, one with pictures, and a third using decorated  papers or using rubber stamp art (using last month's techniques, if desired).

Patterns, papers and pictures will be provided to make the books. There will be a $.50 materials fee. We'll be meeting in our usual spot, 166 BSS at HSU at noon, Saturday November 13. 

Please bring:
  • X-acto knife and cutting mat
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Bone folder
  • Glue stick (or PVA)
  • A weight or book
  • 4 rubber stamps and ink pad with theme (cats, flowers, designs, letters, etc.)
  • 4 pieces of decorative paper 4 x 4'' with theme or color
  • Waxed paper
  • Paper to cover work area
  • 2 or 3 paper towels
