Roll-Up/Pop-Up Book Workshop: Level 2

 

This 2-day workshop runs for 8 hours (four 2-hr sessions):

Saturday, October 24, 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm CDT

Sunday, October 25, 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm CDT

 

You have explored the pop-up how-to books. You're ready to make your own pop-up project. You are stymied by the question: "How do I adapt these classic, foundational structures to make MY OWN structures?" This workshop will help you think through that problem by exploring three different structures at three levels: foundational, transitional, and transformational. To add to the fun, you will employ an innovative roll-up binding approach (think scroll rather than codex) for the pop-up folios. In the end you will have a tidy bound collection of study models that will propel you to the next step of pop-up invention. All are welcome!

 

This workshop is the second in a series of three. The Level 2 structures are moderately complex. Level 1 structures are simpler, and Level 3 structures are more sophisticated. All levels will accommodate beginners. At each level, experienced participants will be challenged in new ways.
