Wednesday Post #6:Teaching the Modified Blizzard Fold at SDBA

Good day and welcome to my sixth post on Wednesday. Today I would like to share some pictures from a recent workshop I taught. It was lots of fun teaching a group of San Diego Book Arts members how to make a Hedi Kyle Blizzard Fold book. We then changed some of the folds to make a box structure that I developed several years ago. I call it the Modified Blizzard Fold. I have since discovered another modification that you are welcome to try as well. One of these days I will make a video of the folding process so stay tuned for that.

Please check out the pictures Joan Crone took of the group as we folded our books. It was a pleasure to teach and learn from everyone. Enjoy!

 Here are some of the supplies we used to color and decorate our paper before folding.
