In this one-day class, make a delightful pop-up house and its 12 walled gardens, each with interconnecting doors and labyrinthine pathways.

Make a delightful pop-up house and its 12 walled gardens, each with interconnecting doors and labyrinthine pathways. Just one quick flick of the wrist and a flat pile of paper becomes a complex pop-up construction. All this is made possible by adapting the cellular slotted partitions used in commercial packaging to creative purposes and ends. It's quite magical—there are no folds! The whole structure is connected by paper joints and hinges.

Materials to bring:  steel ruler, bone folder, scissors, x-acto knife, cutting mat, bookbinding awl, pencil and paper (for taking notes). Bring your own pens for color work, collage or decorative papers to make this model without folds uniquely your own. Optional: you may also bring your favorite papers, photographs, collage, rubber stamps and colour pens for decoration, if desired.
