We will experiment with basic pop-up structures and adaptations. Each student will complete 8 structures: parallel fold, parallel cube, v-fold, tent, platform, angle cube, coil and pyramid. These structures cover basic paper engineering and can be used for a variety of illustration styles and ideas. Once we have put together simple models, students will be encouraged to use the concept to create pages of their own. Samples of structure possibilities will be shared with students for each structure. At the end of the workshop, students will bind their structures using a simple, easy to make cover.

    This is a class for beginner to intermediate students (people with extensive pop-up experience may not find this class challenging). All students will receive images of the basic structures in advance so they can begin to generate ideas for their use. You can also find examples at Bad Girl Press.  When in class, students will receive both patterns and pre-cut pieces for the basic structures, allowing them to assemble the structures in a timely manner. Everyone can then spend more class time on developing content for their individual pages.

    The materials for this course are simple (supplies will be provided):

    • Card stock
    • Double stick tape 
    • Basic tools and cutting mats. 
    • I will supply pre-cut die pieces and patterns.

    • Please bring a lunch. We have a kitchen on the lower floor next to the Print & Book Arts studio with a refrigerator and microwave.

    PHoto courtesy MJ LinfordMary Jeanne (MJ) Linford. I have been an artist for over 50 years and have been binding books for most of those years. I made my first pop-up book at age 16, and still have it in my collection. I have had extensive training in pop-up and movable structures (Julie Chen, Shawn Sheehy, Silvia Hijano Coullaut, Duncan Birmingham, and others) and have my limited-edition pop-up books in libraries, museums and private collections all over the United States.

    I have a Washington State K-12 teaching certificate in Art and have taught art both privately and in public education for over 30 years. I have specifically taught over 6,000 6th grade students, with a pop-up book curriculum I designed myself, and have written a step-by-step manual for use by children and adults. I have taught pop-up book engineering workshops both at the BARN and to adults from other organizations as well. My evaluations have always been quite positive. I delight in seeing students being successful in my classes and work hard to make sure each and every student succeeds. To see more of my work visit www.badgirlpress.com.

    It’s a lot of fun knowing how to make things pop up off of the page, but deciding what structures to use to get your ideas across isn’t always so easy. This class will focus on four simple structures.

    We will construct simple models of the structures, and then look at several examples of each structure that have been used in different and interesting ways. We’ll also look at add-on pieces that extend structures beyond their original concept. Students will complete four unique structures that combine learned techniques with ideas. We will also spend some brain storming time with each structure where students can generate more ideas that could be expressed with each structure.

    Each student will complete four sample structures and four unique structures that are bound in a simple binding. In addition, students will gain the skills to generate ideas and brainstorm ways to express those ideas in pop-up forms.

    The materials for this course are simple (supplies will be provided):

    • Card stock
    • Double stick tape 
    • Basic tools and cutting mats.
