Pop-Up Basics workshop
October 24, 2016
Studio Place Arts (SPA)
201 North Main Street
Monday October 24, 2016, 4:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Creating pop-up paper tricks – or paper engineering – offers a set of skills that may be used for artist books and cards. Using cut paper and folds, you’ll learn the basics of pop-up construction, including box supports, props, and platforms. Come and see the magic behind the motion!
In this workshop, each participant will leave class with a set of pop-up cards to keep as a reference for each mechanism. You will 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. You’ll feel more comfortable in the workshop 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
Materials fee: $8.00
Supplies: Bonefolder, ruler, X-Acto knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil.
- Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.
Cost: SPA Members $40.00/Non-Members $50.00
