Masterclass from Dario Zeruto

22 maart 2018

Last week I followed a two day masterclass from paper artist Dario Zeruto. At the meet & greet organised by ‘Marja WilgenkampBookbinding out of the box‘, Dario showed us some of his stunning work. His enthusiasm, skills and knowledge about paper made it an inspiring evening.

The next day at Boekbinderij Wilgenkamp, the organizer of these wonderful masterclasses, it was our turn. We started with the basic principles of paper folding and some interesting technical knowledge about what happens when you fold paper and how you can influence the behaviour of the fibres. Creating those stunning examples of Dario turned out to be rather difficult. Making the folding lines was ok, but the folding itself was really difficult. You had to get the ritme … tak tak .. aha .. was the group’s name for it 🙂

So now I am practising my tak, tak .. aha’s and it’s cool. I learned more about paper, the sound of paper when a lot of people are folding it and the fun of folding and inventing and exploring. Thank you Dario for your patience and your inspiring lessons!Bookbinding Inspiration Work of Dario ZerutoBookbinding Inspiration Work of Dario Zeruto
