      Box of Fire Works
      Saturday, January 26, 2008

      An extravagant book for the novice and experienced book artist alike.
      Begin by making an origami box to hold an extending pop-up book to
      grow out of the box. As one lifts the book, pages spring from the
      sides, creating a vibrant and surprising display. Great fun to make.

      All materials included, but please bring the following tools if
      possible.
      Tools: Scissors, ruler or straight edge, X-acto knife and cutting
      mat, binders clips, Elmer's glue, colored pencils and markers if
      desired,
      rubber stamps and collage if desired, bone folder optional

      Pop-up Extravaganza
      Sunday, January 27, 2008
      A 3-spread pop-up book, including a haunted house, a giant's castle,
      and a pirate ship.

      Some pop-ups can be made with only scissors, but with a spot of glue
      you can make the type of pop-up you see in stores. This workshop is
      an exciting intensive day for beginners and experienced book artists
      alike.

      All materials included, but please bring the following tools if
      possible.
      Tools: Scissors, ruler or straight edge, X-acto knife and cutting
      mat, binders clips, Elmer's glue, colored pencils and markers if
      desired,
      rubber stamps and collage if desired, bone folder optional
