About the Workshop:

This virtual class at Center for Book Arts is taught by instructor Stephanie Krause.

In this low-mess, fun one-hour virtual workshop, designed for kids ages 7+ and their grown-ups* to enjoy working side by side, you’ll be learning one of the most basic pop-up techniques, the basic box. You’ll then use the basic box to create pop-up cards to give to friends and family! Although I’ll be focusing on a winter/snowman theme for my own work, I encourage participants to create whatever kinds of pop-up cards they would like!

I’ll demonstrate with a camera on my hands so you can watch what I’m doing as I walk you through the process step-by-step, and I’ll check for comprehension along the way.

You’ll be able to use your pop-up knowledge to create all sorts of cards throughout the year, for any occasion!

*Please note that younger kids or kids with motor challenges may need the assistance of their grown-ups.

Required Materials:

  • Construction paper or card stock
  • Scrap Paper
  • Glue stick
  • Popsicle stick (to assist with folding)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Things to draw or color with

More detailed materials list, including measurements, will be provided in the confirmation email sent upon registration.
