A Wardrobe of Paper Cases
Instructor Karen Hanmer
Saturday December 11, 2021
10 AM to 1 PM Eastern Standard Time
From wherever you are, via Zoom.
(This workshop will be recorded, and video will be available to registered students for two weeks after the workshop)
In this one session online workshop we will quickly construct a text block using a very speedy sewing technique. This will free up the remainder of our time together to concentrate on folding a variety of paper cases to dress this text block ”mannequin." As each case is presented, suggestions will be given on appropriate sewing techniques and endsheet constructions for that particular structure. All structures are low or no adhesive. All can be constructed in a sparsely-equipped home studio with minimal specialized equipment. This workshop is appropriate for intermediate binders, beginners who are ready for a fast-paced workout, and anyone who wants to add more paper cases to their repertoire.
