Embrace this festive season with creativity by learning the basic building blocks of paper engineering to “elevate” your holiday greeting cards to a whole new level of joy-filled fun.
This 3-hour online session will feature the fundamental skills you’ll need to master the structures used to create pop-up winter-themed cards—then share them with the lucky ones on your holiday mailing list! You will finish the class with a set of ready to send cards, as well as instructions and templates for all the techniques taught to encourage further projects inspired by our class. Skills include the parallel fold and box support, the V fold, origami base folds and other cutting, folding and gluing techniques that you will learn how to use in combination.
A materials kit created by the instructor is included with class registration (available for pick-up or shipping) with all cardstock, handmade prints, specialty papers, glue, and ephemera needed for the class projects, as well as envelopes and custom envelope templates. Students are encouraged to add their own favorite bits of ephemera, photographs or copies of their original art to further personalize their pop-up creations.
All levels welcome!
Registration with class kit shipping closes November 19, 2021; Registration with class kit pick-up closes November 24, 2021. Students will also receive a list of other needed tools and supplies to gather/purchase ahead of class, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” on downloading and using the Zoom video app.
