Learn how to turn outdated books into folded book art! In this free online class, crafter Joyce Petro will take you step-by-step through the process of book folding: from choosing the right book and reading a basic pattern to creating perfect folds while avoiding the pitfalls many beginners encounter. Workshop participants will be provided with a printable version of the pattern used in the video so you can follow along at home. 

For supplies you will need: 

  • a hardbound book of at least 488 numbered pages that is at least 8 inches tall*
  • the provided printable pattern
  • a pencil
  • a ruler with centimeter/millimeter markings
