5:30 to 7:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Pop-ups are astonishing when big volumes emerge from between two pages. They are MAGICAL when they move in a way that mimics life. This workshop explores a variety of simple techniques for creating pop-ups that open in a way that suggests animation. Basic tools, materials, and structures of paper engineering will also be discussed. This is one of two workshops that will explore this material. Take either or both! A kit of pre-cut pieces will be mailed a week in advance. All skill levels are encouraged.
