If you want to add more magic to your cards and artist books, then give pop-ups a try! Also known as paper engineering, pop-ups use cuts and folds to create motion and energy in paper structures.

Through the creation of a series of pop-up cards, you’ll learn the basics of three-dimensional construction, including box supports, props, and straddles. You’ll then bind these cards into a book, which will become a handy reference for future work.

You’ll receive a detailed handout and resource list for all materials we use. No previous experience is required – this is a great class for a beginner. However, you’ll probably feel more comfortable if you have experience using an X-Acto knife.

All materials are included in the materials fee, but feel free to bring materials for use in creating your cards.

Several ideas are:

  • Collage materials (paper)
  • Photographs
  • Rubber stamps and pads
  • Markers, pens, colored pencils, etc.
  • Decorative scissors/punches

Note: For younger participants: This is an all day, intensive workshop requiring focus and the use of sharp tools.

Supplies/Tools: Bonefolder, ruler, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil.

Materials Fee: $12.00

Cost: SPA members $50.00  / Non-members $60.00
