BARN has the great fortune to offer a workshop with Shawn Sheehy, an internationally known pop-up book artist.

This is a rare and fabulous opportunity in this 3 session class to learn paper engineering from a master. Shawn's teaching style accommodates beginners and advanced alike, and you will leave the class with a completed popup book and a good understanding of the basics of popup engineering.  

Nearly all pop-ups are built from just two simple, fundamental structures. Learning how and when to use those two structures—and to see the broad range of what they can do—can open the door to a lifetime of exploration. In this three-day workshop, you will explore the fundamentals of paper engineering, learn about the tools and materials of the craft, and finally execute a binding specially designed for pop-ups.

Beginners are welcome; participants with previous experience in fiber arts and/or paper craft will have a leg-up.

There will be an additional $10 supply fee, payable at the beginning of class. Please bring a check or cash.

About the Instructor:
Shawn Sheehy is an artist with a love of ecology who enjoys exploring such themes as interconnectedness, adaptability, and evolution. Passionate about pop-up books, he works sculpturally with the book format and has presented numerous workshops on pop-up engineering across the country.

(MJ's comments:  Shawn's basic class was a pivotal experience in my popup career...I truly understood popups after his class!)
