Learn to make 3D folded paper structures and tunnel books that incorporate your own hand-printed imagery. You will make relief prints by carving designs with linocut tools into the surface of smooth blocks. You’ll apply ink and transfer the images using hand pressure onto paper, creating relief/block prints. These prints will be incorporated into structures such as tunnel books and pop-ups, enabling you to tell a story, convey a feeling or present an idea in 3D.

Carolyn (Carey) James learned traditional printmaking processes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, France and at the University of California, Los Angeles. She provides technical assistance to artists at her home print studio, Green Dog Workshop in Larchmont, California and also has taught Printmaking since 1991 at The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena. As an Akua Demo Artist for Speedball Art Products Company, she’s demonstrated the use of water-based Akua liquid pigments and intaglio inks at art stores throughout Southern and Central California. Carey incorporates some of her printed work into book structures and finds that sculptural and storytelling elements open up a whole new world of expression.
