Movables and Popups in Artists’ Books

with Olli Johnson
Mondays: February 4, 11, 18, 25; 6-9pm
All skill levels welcome

Lift, Spin, Pull and Pop! Learn techniques to create dimension and movement in your work. We’ll start with a series of exercises to understand fundamental paper engineering principles. As we explore a variety of folds, you’ll learn to make basic pop-up structures using free-hand shapes and templates that can be used to make more complicated designs. Then learn how to incorporate movables such as tabs, paper rivets, and spinners. There will be an emphasis on understanding fold theory as well as guided time to explore an independent project.
