Want to make a book sculpture of your favorite story? Perhaps you’d like to design your own take on Orwell’s 1984 book jacket or create an illustration for the scariest Harry Potter scene?
Boo York City’s editor, Boo Paterson, is teaching private classes in New York this summer on how to bring stories to life using pages from damaged books to make 3D illustrations.
Paterson – who is a renowned paper artist and author of Papercut This Book – will teach you the techniques that illustrators use to come up with creative ideas, as well as the manual skills needed to create a book sculpture.
The one-to-one classes for adults, or children over eight years old, take place either in the comfort of your own home, or at Shakespeare & Co on Lexington Ave, and cost $175 per person. There is a maximum of four people per class and all materials and equipment are supplied. All children under 16 must be accompanied by at least one adult.
