Popping Up and Out: Advanced Paper Engineering for Book Artists

In this intermediate workshop, participants will take their knowledge of basic pop-up techniques to the next level to create complex variations. Some mechanisms we’ll explore include opposing angle folds, parallel and angle lifting platforms, three-dimensional shapes, revolving mechanisms and pivoting pull-tabs. Once mastered, these mechanisms can become the building blocks for spectacular three-dimensional inventions. Participants will all go home with at least one finished pop-up spread. Pop-ups are really just inventive uses of cutting, folding and gluing plus your own unique play and imagination.

Colette's 5-day workshop is part of the second annual Summer Institute for Book and Print Technologies taking place at Mills College June 5-16, 2017. This two-week summer institute is open to members of the national book art community and will include 5-day workshops taught at the master class level by well-known book and print artists, a master critique seminar and a pricing seminar.
