If you are in the mood to learn how to make some of these great popups that they have featured, the next few months offers some great workshops with some great popup artists. Starting the first weekend of August, Shawn Sheehy will be teaching his great popup techniques at the Center for Book Arts on August 2nd and 3rd! Check their website for registration info and it's not too late! In November, he will also be at the Denver Botanical Gardens with a weekend workshop that is filled! But, if you live in the area, they may have some last minute openings, so get on their waiting list! Starting in September, Paul Johnson, whose books are also featured in the online pop-up catalog, will be heading stateside and offering workshops on the East Coast starting Sept. 23rd in upstate New York. Contact Ed Hutchins for more information on that and then Paul comes to the Print Council of NJ in Branchburg, NJ for a two-day workshop on how to use prints in creating popups. He will also be doing workshops in Baltimore at The Walters Museum of Art and perhaps some other venues along the way!
Another great resource for those who like the self-paced style, check out Helen Hiebert's new book release on popups. Entitled "Playing with Popups", it is a fun, simple and easy-to-understand book with great examples and easy directions!
Stay cool and here's to pop-ups!
