This book has been a great inspiration for working with paper. I've actually done quite a few of the projects in it including pop-ups with index cards (see below).
The weaving project was done by 5th and 6th grade girls. It really requires a lot of patience and an eye for seeing the unseen. It's actually quite simple. You start off with a basic over/under weaving but what adds that element of artistry is envisioning what the paper could become if you pull and crease a certain way. The shadows created by the lifted paper add yet another dimension. I did purposely choose a white on white palette so the girls could focus on the space and not the color. I also should add that I did not suggest for them to create any particular image, it was just about exploring shadows and light. The discovery of the shapes or words was through their own artistic process...very cool.
