Dreamland Mystery Tour: Pop-up Book Workshop

Pop Up Book
X

Description

This year’s workshop takes a magical journey through the rooms of a dreamland house.

Each page spread opens on a new room and reveals its secrets – salubrious sitting room, delightful dining room, luxuriant library, cosy children’s play room and more. The artwork is playful and decorative rather than literal - the aim being to make a book comprising  doorways that lead the eye into playful environments.
.
An exciting, hands-on workshop for experienced paper engineers and beginners alike.
