In collaboration with the reception, a paper-engineering workshop featuring paper artist Colette Fu of Philadelphia will be held from 2-5 p.m. in Alden Trust Room 219 of Insalaco Hall. Fu will introduce the basics of paper engineering and demonstrate how pop-up structures are created. Fu’s award-winning pop-up books are in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Participants will go home with a simple piece of pop-up art. Participants with some skill in paper art are welcome to try more complex techniques. Advanced students should bring digitally printed MATTE photos or laser prints, no larger than 8.5 by x 11 inches.
The workshop will be limited to the first 20 participants who register. The registration fee is $40. Registration deadline is Monday, March 4. This event was made possible with the generous support of the Barbara Soyka Fund for the Humanities and the Sandra Dyczewski Maffei Endowment.
