You will build a small, cabinet-like book composed of 4 bound shallow boxes, each of which is inhabited by a different paper mechanism. The first page-box explores movable paper engineering fundamentals; e.g., volvelles and pull tabs. By adding a sculptural component, the second amplifies a model from the first box. The third is a tiny automata. The fourth is a classic crankie. The fifth page-box combines a shutter with a sneaky lift.
You will make this movable mechanical magical book with just card stock, tyvek, board, PVA, and simple hand tools. The workshop teaches skills in book binding, paper engineering, and automata building. Both beginners and advanced paper engineering practitioners will be accommodated and challenged by the material.Buy tickets/get more info now
