MY APPROACH

  • Help people of all ages discover the magic (and science!) of making their very own books and pop-ups.

  • Facilitate cross-curricular, multidimensional projects.

  • Organize workshops in such a way that kids do as much themselves as possible.

  • Provide the opportunity for participants to use authentic tools and supplies.

  • Encourage the reduction, reuse, and recycling of paper.

  • Exploit the richness of the book arts: from the fascinating history of books and pop-ups, to the marvels of paper and its mechanical, mathematical, and scientific aspects.

  • Strive to have all participants, regardless of their abilities or challenges, find some part of the project that resonates with them.

  • Give kids and adults the techniques they need to continue creating with paper after the workshop is finished.

"Kate was amazing. Her ability to teach such an intricate skill over Zoom was remarkable. The students enjoyed coming up to the camera and sharing their progress with her. 

Kate's organization and great visual and auditory cues really facilitated the learning process. I highly recommend her workshops and would love to collaborate with Kate again in the future."
