Pop-up Spirit House
with Paul Johnson
September 21, 2014
10:00 am – 4:30 pm
In domestic gardens, public spaces, forecourts of shops and businesses in Southeast Asia, particularly Thailand there are spirit house shrines. They are everywhere. Intended to provide a shelter for spirits these miniature temples are mounted on a pillar or dais. In this workshop you will make a paper 3D pop-up spirit house without folds as all sections are joined with interlocking units, dovetail joints and piano hinges.
