CALLIGRAPHIC EDITIONS FROM SINGLE FOLDED SHEETS - FGU0619
Milan, 8/9 June 2019
Cristina Balbiano d'Aramengo


This workshop is designed to give participants the opportunity to make single-sheet books through folds and cuts, without the use of glue (possibly with some simple stitching), assembling their calligraphic / graphic materials.

We will analyze the grammage and mechanical characteristics of the various papers, and the tools necessary to work them; starting from different formats and changing proportions, we will focus initially on models made with blank paper to learn the structures, in which annotate the work notes, obtaining a series of models / samples useful as a reference for the practice.

Starting from these models, on the second day the participants will work by replicating the structures produced, or creating personal variations, using their own graphic / calligraphic material already created, making real folded books.
Particular attention will be given to the reversibility of the work, so that the calligraphy can be used both in folded form, in the succession of pages, and in the form of an open and extended sheet, in the unity of the graphic work.

For beginners and for every level.
