Toni Hartill Workshop on making folded books

I am not really a paper crafter and when I think of book making I tend to think of traditional books so Toni's workshop today blew those concepts clean out of the water. Here are some of her books that we tried to emulate. I was particularly fascinated with the concepts of making boxes to house the books in and of course my first thought always is how to transfer the concept to textiles. Toni is an experimental book maker rather than a step by step process person and she brought magic to the class as she described her process of working. Of course this course cam through my contact with the Waiprint girls from when I did printmaking with them a few years back so I was very honoured to be included in the group and to catch up with people I havent seen for a long time
