Pop-Up Native Wildflowers   Shawn Sheehy

 

Celebrate spring with flowers! Nearly all pop-ups are built from just two simple 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 workshop, you will use these two structures to create pop-up cards featuring wildflowers native to the Midwest, such as trillium, jack-in-the-pulpit, and columbine. No experience is necessary, but previous experience in fiber arts and/or paper craft will speed your progress. This content readily accommodates beginners and advanced makers alike. You will leave the class with a completed set of pop-up flower cards and a good understanding of the tools and techniques of pop-up engineering.  Sat & Sun, April 22 & 23,  10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  $290/$20 materials
