WORKSHOPS

I have delivered family workshops in pop-up design and illustration in a variety of venues including Verulamium Museum, The Barbican, St Albans Museum, Imagine Festival (Royal Festival Hall), Geffrye Museum and Florence Nightingale Museum.

I can accommodate approximately twenty people (space permitting) where the children are working on their own individual pieces. Group projects can be run using a drop-in system with larger numbers. I’m also very happy to consider themed projects. Please get in touch to discuss your ideas and the cost of the workshops.

The workshops are hands-on where I teach basic paper engineering skills which can be built on to produce more complicated pop-up designs. Projects vary from small-scale individual or group pop-up books to whole class/group activities involving large-scale pop-up constructions using corrugated cardboard.

For the very young children, I can read from one of the books and do a ‘live’ drawing session. If there’s time, I can provide a ready-made pop-up framework to use for a class activity creating a giant pop-up.

Examples of my school and family workshops below. Further details are on my Contact an Author page.
