Have you ever wanted to make paper pop-up, twist, turn and transform? We will learn how to construct moving parts for books and cards using pull-tabs, pop-ups and creative cutting. We will also explore origami folds transforming a flat sheet of paper into a three-dimensional object through simple folding and cutting. Participants will explore a variety of techniques and make several prototypes before designing their own pop-up project that can be photocopied, cut out and assembled in an edition.
