MCML Workshop: Folded Books with Erwin Huebner

In this workshop we will look at a few examples of books made from a single sheet of paper by folding.

Hedi Kyle is a well known book artist who has pioneered a number of variations of folded books such as “Blizzard Books and Flag Books. I will demonstrate how to make folded book structures such as Concertina books, Flag Books and Blizzard books and variations thereof.

Workshop attendees will be able to make a blizzard book and time permitting perhaps a second folded book type.

All materials will be provided.

A useful reference book is “The Art of the Fold: How to Make Innovative Books and Paper Structures” by Hedi Kyle and Ulla Warchol.  2018 Lawrence King Publishing.

Meet your Instructor: Erwin Huebner – Visual Artist and Scientist

I explore the interface between art and science, aesthetically and philosophically in multimedia including photography, intaglio and related print media, glass and in artist books from traditional bindings to sculptural books, miniature to “mega” formats. I am passionate about the hidden beauty inherent in the “microscopic” world and the impressive potential afforded by “the book” as an art form. As a book artist and multimedia artist I highlight the incredible microarchitecture of the biological world, the shapes, textures and patterns that evoke awe in a metaphysical plane above their inherent scientific content. These books intend to instill emotions, inquiry, wonderment and reawakening an appreciation of nature’s wonders. The imagery depends on interactions of natural materials with light, electrons, and one’s imagination. Some of my books, photographs and prints illustrate “microlandscapes”, others are explorations of textures, colors, the incredible microarchitecture of living organisms, and patterns within patterns. In representing the natural world I try to incorporate natural materials into the book structure and thematic content. My artistic work is significantly influenced by my experiences as scientist doing research in cell biology and imaging at the University of Manitoba in the former Department of Zoology and now Department of Biological Sciences.
