Remember how wonderful it was to receive pop-up books and cards as a kid? Well, we're bringing 3D back in this 3 hour crafty session set to take your book to another dimension. In this workshop you will design your own paper folds and learn different techniques to create your own pop up book. Each page will be constructed as a single page when bound together and you will learn the different technical approaches to paper cutting and the mechanical elements on how to make them 3D from a page then lie flat.
Once we have created each pop up page we will bind them together and you'll leave with a wonderful and complete pop-up book, as well as the knowledge on how to create more in the future.
Let's get it poppin.
