Creating Pop Ups

Hilary Elliot —

One day last week, I visited Matua Pete's room, and found an amazing pop-up book called 'Swell - The Art of Judy Millar'.

I was immediately entranced by the amazing detail of the pop-ups, so I took it down to E-Block to share with the students of E3. As I turned each page, the students exclaimed loudly in wonder and fascination. We immediately decided to see if we could re-create some of this magic. 

Students paired up to imagine, design, and create their own pop-up pages. It took a lot of experimentation and perseverance, and many brushes with failure (a perfect opportunity to learn!). We are not quite finished with them yet - but we will keep you updated!
