POP-UP Flower garden with Shawn Sheehy

Just added:
POP-UP Flower garden with Shawn Sheehy
Fri. – Sat., April 22 – 23, 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

In this two-day workshop, you will build 10-12 pop-up cards featuring native flowers of North AmericaWorking within the physical boundaries of paper-engineered structures provides exciting challenges for maintaining both accuracy of flower structure and pop-up function. Fundamental techniques of pop-up engineering will be demonstrated and practiced while building these flowers, using little more than a knife, glue and card stock. Aside from assembling a collection of cards that you might either bind together and keep for further study or gift to family and friends, you will have the knowledge to continue engineering your own pop-up paper plants at home.  Fee: $140 member, $175 non-member. No experience is necessary, but binding and/or sewing skills will speed your progress. All students are welcome, with no prerequisites.

Shawn Sheehy combines paper engineering and paper making with an interest in biology and science to produce sculptural pop-up books. Shawn has taught workshops at PBI, Penland and the Centers for Book Arts in Chicago and New York. His commercial pop-up clients include the American Girl Company and American Greetings.
