Free Pop-up Book Workshop

Make It Pop-up!: a do-it-yourself book workshop for kids and parents

  • Saturday, April 27
  • 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
  • Walker Library Special Collections (4th Floor)

MTSU’s Walker Library is hosting an exciting hands-on workshop in association with the exhibit, The Anatomy of Pop-ups, currently on display in Special Collections. Plan now to attend this fun and free event for kids (and their parents!) ages 8 to 12. Our workshop leader is Kathleen O’Connell, who currently teaches Book Arts in MTSU’s Department of Art and has led workshops at Burlington City Arts Studio 250 in Vermont, Oregon College of Art and Craft, Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and at her studio in Lima, Peru. O’Connell will teach kids how to create a simple but surprising pop-up book using sheets of paper and some simple cuts and folds.
There is no cost to participants. Free parking is available next to Walker Library and all materials and tools will be supplied, but space is limited. 
Reserve your slot now by calling Susan Hanson at (615) 904-8503 or sending an email to
