Today a group of emerging paper engineers will be offering their skills to children in Salem, New York which will be the season’s final workshop for Book Summer In Salem (BASIS) 2011.
This past year Cloe, Carly, Charity, Adam, Hannah, Scout, Keenan, Mikayah, and Lucy worked with Ruth Sauer and Ed Hutchins at the North Main Gallery. Not only did Ruth and Ed introduce these students to methods of paper engineering, but they somehow facilitated an underlying understanding of pop-ups and moveable paper mechanisms so that the students were able to create page after page of interesting structures, which became stories, which became a book, The ???? Book.
