Friday Night Craft Party: Pop-Up Valentines

Home Ec – Friday, Feb. 5, 6-8 p.m.

Join paper-crafters for a pop-up card-making party at Home Ec in Iowa City on Friday night.

Instructor Emily Martin, who also teaches at the University of Iowa Center for the Book, will show crafty students simple ways to cut paper to make shapes rise out of the fold, like those found in pop-up children’s books.

“Pop-ups are easier to do than many people think,” Martin said. Her class covers basic paper engineering and participants can make any kind of card, not just valentines.

The workshop costs $30 and includes all supplies.

Looking for a free craft night? Next week, Home Ec hosts the Iowa City knitting guild, Prairie Yarn Over, for a free knit and wine event on Thus., Feb. 11.
