A special kind of creative magic awaits you in this workshop. You will learn basic on-the-fold pop-up structures, then progress through more complicated three-dimensional glued constructions. Props, platforms, and V-fold  pop-ups will be covered. Emphasis will on developing an understanding of the simple mechanics involved in this art of “paper engineering.” A slide show on the history of pop-up and movable books will be included. This is an ideal class for artists, teachers, graphic designers, and anyone who loves to play with paper. No prerequisite. *$5 Materials fee
