with Shawn Sheehy
Thursdays: July 8, 15, 22; 4:30–6:30pm CT
Pop-up books are most magical when impossible images emerge with the turn of a page. Strategies for creating expansive structures are useful in miniature books, as they allow you to exponentially increase the drama and content! Using cardstock and a small set of simple hand tools, you will build and then bind a variety of pop-up structures.
All levels are welcome; participants with binding or paper craft skills will have a leg up.
All skill levels welcome!
Certificate: 6 hours, Category D

We are offering a reduced rate to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) participants to honor equity and increase access and artistic opportunities for those who have historically been underrepresented in the book arts. For individuals to whom this does not apply, register at the rate listed first and, if you are able, consider making a donation when registering to support MCBA’s efforts to make reduced rates available.
