This week FoldIT Creations was invited to the “Everything Paper and Pop-Up” Family day event at Zion Historic Schoolhouse here in Toronto. The day was filled with everything paper; from pop-up cards and flipbooks to paperdolls and origami. It was a great oppertunity to showcase and sell my wares and talk to the public about Japanese paper and FoldIT Creations. I also had the pleasure to do origami workshops with kids and their parents, a great bonding experience.
Another vendor who shared the Zion Schoolhouse space with me was the lovely Toronto-based paper doll designer, writer and independent art curator, Helena Frei. Drawing on her extensive knowledge of textiles and costume, as well as her love of digital manipulation, she designs paper cut-out dolls from different historical periods.
