Learn the basic techniques of making pup-ups with “Madame Pop-up” over the course of this two-day workshop . We’ll start out with cut and fold techniques, such as boxes and V-folds, and move on to attachments, backbones, towers and floating planes. With lots of samples to look at, you’ll soon be ready to make pop-up books or greeting cards. This workshop is suitable for teens and adults. Teachers are welcome—Madame Pop-up has many years of experience in Ontario classrooms. Making pop-ups is a cross-curricular activity that can be geared to younger students as well and old alike!
