Books & Paper B Summer Session 3

Books & Paper Summer Session 3
June 20 – July 1, 2021
Shawn Sheehy
Modular, Moving, Pop-Up Creatures

Have you ever asked yourself, “How do I adapt the structures I see in pop-up books to make my own structures?” This workshop will help you find the answer to that question by exploring nine structures at four levels: foundational, transitional, transformational, and personal. In the first week, we’ll make sample folios using an innovative, roll-up binding approach. The second week will be devoted to independent work. Students will leave with a set of bound study models and a good start on their own project. All levels. 

Studio artist; teaching: Peters Valley (NJ), Arrowmont (TN), San Francisco Center for the Book, Center for Book Arts (NYC), Minnesota Center for Book Arts; collections: Stanford University (CA), Carnegie Mellon University (PA), University of Chicago, University of California-Los Angeles; trade publications: Welcome to the Neighborwood, Beyond the Sixth Extinction.
