Pop-ups are dimensional and come to life when a page is turned. Movables are flat and come to life when a tab is pulled. Both strategies alone can animate a page; combining the two can make the animation even more exciting. In this workshop you will assemble and explore a variety of applied foundational structures for paper engineering, and you will bind the collected structures into a simple case. All skill levels are encouraged. Maximum of 15 students.
