Discover the magic of the sculptural book through exploration of three-dimensional and pop-up forms. Learn how to use book structures to help convey your message. Participants will construct a series of pop-ups from simple to more complex glued structures, along with an accordion book, a carousel book, and a tunnel book. This will be an ideal session for book artists, teachers, graphic designers, and anyone who likes to play with paper. Open to all.
