Dramatic Pop-Up Structures for Miniature Books




Instructor: Shawn Sheehy
Skill Level: All Levels
Materials Fee: $35.00
Length of workshop: 4 days



Workshop description:

Impossibly large images create excitement in a pop-up book. Strategies for creating these expansive structures are useful in miniature books, as they allow the artist to increase the drama and expand the content. Using cardstock and a small set of simple hand tools, students will build and bind a wide range of structures that move above, beyond and behind the page. The final day of the workshop will be dedicated to independent projects. Beginners are welcome; experienced participants will explore pop-ups in a whole new way.
