Dreamland Mystery Tour: Pop-up Book Workshop
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.
A workshop for the experienced paper engineer and beginner alike.
Residential Fees From: £379. Non Residential: £268
Course runs from Lunch on Tuesday to Lunch on Thursday.
