Monday 2nd to Sunday 3rd March


Folded Secrets books contain many 3D compartments. The traditional versions from Yunnan have distinctive red cloth covers with tassels and are decorated inside with birds, flowers, figures, and tiny triangles. On day one you will construct and start to decorate your book; on day two you will complete the decoration and add a cloth or paper cover. A cutting layout is provided before the workshop so that you can come prepared with the paper cut ready for folding.
Materials cost from £10.00
Keepsake Ruth Smith trained as a teacher at Goldsmiths College and spent most of her career teaching City & Guilds embroidery. She graduated from Winchester school of Art with an MA in the History of Art & Design. This led on to group research into Gina Corrigan's collection of minority Chinese festival dress.
