Paper weaving exploration: From memories of childhood techniques to 3D objects 
with Francesca Vitali
Virtual One-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
May 07, 2021 | 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. ET 
This course is designed for beginners. Former jewelry making experience is not required. During  the workshop we will explore a braiding technique based on lanyard making (who hasn’t done a  keychain with plastic strings back in camp?). We’ll start by diving into the material. Students will  learn the ideal weight of paper for folding and how to choose the right kind of paper depending  on the project (recycling vs new paper vs handmade paper). We will then talk about different cutting techniques. And we’ll conclude by braiding the paper, paying particular attention on to  those details (how to start a project and weaving tension) that will transform each piece into a  wonderful object. Students may or may not have a finished piece at the end of the workshop, but  they will definitely have all the tools to embark in the world of 3D woven paper.
