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)
- Rubber stamps and pads
- Markers, pens, colored pencils, etc.
- Decorative scissors/punches
Supplies/Tools: Bonefolder, ruler, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil.
Cost: $68.00 (includes all materials)
