Join me for a one-hour Zoom workshop and presentation on Friday, September 29th at noon (US Mountain Time Zone). I’ll talk a bit about my Paper Year Membership Program, and then we’ll dive into making this Pleated Card.

If you haven’t already, please register for the Zoom event here.

You will receive a reminder with the Zoom link the day of the workshop. If you can’t make it, that’s okay, but please sign up if you wish to receive the recording.

Please bring the following tools & materials:
  • 8-1/2 x 11″ sheet of thin, translucent paper (for pleating)
  • 8-1/2 x 11″ piece of card stock (for the card base)
  • 1/4″ double-sided tape, glue with small applicator (1/8″ brush), or glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Bone folder
  • Awl
  • Cutting mat with grid
  • Ruler (see through if you have one)
Paper suggestions:
  • Make sure your paper for pleating is thin but has some body/stiffness (thai unryu is too flimsy). I used my handmade abaca for the pleating, but any thin Asian paper will work (washi, hanji, etc.). 
You will Learn:
  1. How to choose paper for a project: I will share specific paper recommendations with you, since this is one of the most common questions I get. It takes experience to develop a feel for paper, and we learn about paper qualities through the projects in The Paper Year.
  2. About some of my favorite tools.
  3. A really interesting way of pleating paper.
