How can the simple act of folding create beautiful garments and textiles? The participants gained a unique insight into the secrets of Jule Waibel’s Unfolded Universe in this hands-on workshop.

In the first part of the session, participants where introduced to traditional techniques of paper-folding and creating steam-pleating molds. They learned how to apply these traditional methods to different materials and experiment with it.

In the second part, participants had the opportunity to develop their own pattern and create a 3D structure with folded textiles. Studying their geometry and behavior enabled to turn all pieces into a kinetic object.
