“Everything Paper and Pop-Up” Family Day at Zion Historic Schoolhouse

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.  You can check out her website at dollworks.ca.

I’ve got Butterflies!

20130215-175523.jpg

On Monday February 18th, I’ll be doing my first show and I’ve got the butterflies. The city of Toronto is having an ‘Everything Pop-up and Paper’ event at Zion Historic Schoolhouse for family day. The theme is paper and will showcase hand made items made in paper by various local artists. I will be selling my origami earrings at the event as well as teaching kids how to make various simple origami designs. I miss working with kids so I can’t wait for Monday to spend the day folding with the public. Tonight I sit with my new bone folder and my tiny chiyogami squares folding la fosse butterflies to sell at the show…. With a glass of wine of course.

A few new things up in my Etsy Shop!

Today’s Creations

After working 5 days straight and having no time to make anything new, I finally had a day off.  I spent the entire day on the living room floor surrounded by beads, feathers and chiyogami paper.  Here are a few pics of today’s creations.

Peace.
