Instructor: Bari Zaki. Currently offered as a private, semiprivate or group class (up to 7), 1½-hour class. No previous envelope making experience necessary. To request a date & time, add this class to your cart, and then email bz@barizaki.com with your preferred date(s) and time of day.

What you’ll make: The power and the beauty of hand-folding revealed. Anything you send or present in a handmade envelope will thrill its fortunate recipient.

In this 1½-hour workshop you will learn how to hand-fold envelopes without a template. We will use lovely drawing papers that make a sturdy envelope, particularly pleasant for addressing. You will also learn how to line your handmade envelopes with decorative papers.

If you have any favorite magazine pages, we can fold those into envelopes as well (as seen in the third photo).

Our studio is light-filled, airy, and organized. You are welcome to browse our extensive library of books about bookbinding, calligraphy, and drawing. We look forward to sharing our love of papers & envelope making with you in this 1½-hour workshop!

Class fee includes the use of all materials: A dazzling assortment of papers, bonefolder, Xacto blade, ruler, triangle ruler, glue-stick, red-bordered labels, vintage postage. You’ll receive our charming illustrated step-by-step handout in your personalized kit (imagine your name is Audrey).
