A group of ten enthusiastic students took part in my pop-up paper engineering workshop at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh this past weekend. We covered the construction of a range of pop-up structures, from simple cut-and-fold versions to platforms, props, and V-fold pop-ups. Everyone did a great job of bringing their own creative ideas into play.
The Society for Contemporary Craft features a gallery, craft store, and a full calendar of classes and events. It’s located just off the lively Penn Avenue strip where a string of ethnic market shops and street vendors sell their wares, so it’s a great place to spend some time enjoying a full range of world foods, crafts, and a cosmopolitans vibe.
