Do you love to look at pop-up and 3D books but are intimidated to try making them yourself? If so, then our September workshop is just for you. For more than 20 years Mary Conley has shown her 3D and pop-up books in juried shows both in Canada and the US. In this workshop she will share some of her books and reveal the materials behind their construction. We will also make a sample of her watermelon book and learn the details of the construction of the 360 degree Tree book. Some of Mary's books were made with a Silhouette Cameo cutter, a useful tool for making multiple copies. For fun, we'll also make a pop-up rose bouquet. To learn more about Mary and her work visit this site:
