Description

Paper crafts are as old as paper itself, with a profusion of different techniques and traditions originating around the world. Paper is affordable, ephemeral and easily manipulated, and has long inspired makers from humble folk crafters to fine artists and fashion designers. The book begins with a practical guide to tools, techniques and materials for the modern paper crafter. Chapters cover Folding, Cutting, Sticking and Forming. Each introduces a range of paper craft traditions and offers maker’s projects inspired by them. With projects ranging from braided paper string jewelry to a concertina papercut peepshow, from a silhouette family portrait to a handmade paper notebook, this book will introduce makers to the immensely exciting creative possibilities of paper.
