Hours: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

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

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

Cost: $68.00 (includes all materials)

Register online or print out the registration form and mail it in.
