3D Textile - Wearable Origami

2-Day workshop withTine De Ruysser (Be)

Tine De Ruysser uses the technique of folding on various materials.  She creates surprising and exciting designs from textiles, wood or paper. Flat materials are transformed as if by magic into precious objects or jewelry.

During this 2-Day workshop your tutor will guide you thru the stunning world of origami: so simple yet very complex!

Tine will give a lecture about how she uses tessellating origami patterns and a combination of materials to create 3D laminated textiles.

On day one you will learn how to create your own folding patterns in paper and tyvek® (a synthetic non-woven, that behaves almost like paper).

On day two you will make your own textile laminate, using a vinyl cutter and heat press. For this Tine will provide you with a suitable folding pattern.
