Class meets for Two Consecutive Wednesdays Nov 4th + Nov 11th, 6-8pm EDT
NOTE: This class will be held in an online format using the Zoom Platform

If you have been confused or challenged by how to make books move and pop, this will be the perfect introduction to the basics and complexities of designing successful pop-up narratives that are uniquely yours.

On the first day we will work with Pop-up mechanisms cut from the center fold of a folio and a two add on pop-ups.  On day two we will go further with more applied pop-ups. We will then bind all of these samples into a drum leaf book.

All levels welcome. 2  hours for each zoom class with a short break at 45 minutes.

  • X-acto knife with blades
  • Dull knife, like a steak knife (something you have in a kitchen drawer)
  • Small bottle of Elmer’s white Glue-All (usually available at grocery stores)
