Exploring Ecology with Pop-Up Books in Cafe Botanique, November 5th

Spoonfull of Honey: Exploring Ecology with Pop-Up Books
Shawn Sheehy, Chicago
While teaching ecology to children at the YMCA in the early '90s, Shawn Sheehy felt his interest in the topic solidify into a life-long pursuit. Now he uses the allure of pop-up books to explore environmental principles with a new generation, both children and adults.

Shawn Sheehy's interest in paper engineering is a result of study in sculpture, graphic design and book arts. His interest in the natural world stems from his years living in rural Indiana and teaching environmental studies. Shawn creates limited-edition pop-up books, contributes on the occasional commercial pop-up project and teaches paper engineering workshops. If he's not in the studio, you can find him in the garden.
