Pop-up and flap books were originally created to illustrate ideas about astronomy, fortune telling, navigation, anatomy of the body and other scientific principles. Complex and engaging pop-up structures are created from a combination of basic mechanisms enhanced by play and imagination. In this course, students will learn the basic elements of pop-up paper engineering to more complex mechanisms including multilevel platforms and pull-tabs. Workshop participants will learn how to effectively incorporate their own art into these structures to create unique pop-up books, cards, and works of art.
