The workshop seems fantastic, as you can see in the description below:

Discover the magic of the sculptural book through explorations of three-dimensional and pop-up forms. Participants will learn a variety of pop-up structures, beginning with simple cut-and-fold pop-ups and progressing through a series of more complex glued constructions. The workshop will also explore sculptural bindings, the carousel, and tunnel book formats. A lesson on adding lights to pop-ups will be included. Slide shows of historical and artist-made books will be presented. An ideal session for anyone who likes to play with paper.

I’ve taken a workshop with Carol before and I highly recommend working with her if you have the chance.

By the way, Carol has a new book, Land Forms and Air Currents. The accordion book stretches over 150 inches when fully opened and incorporates scans of her original watercolors with floating pop-up additions. It’s really lovely.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
