Pop up BookFree Workshop Part of Montclair Literary Festival

Inspired by colorful pop-up books, families will be guided to create their own paper pop-up book combining bold imagery and the written word. Explore various techniques for a cut-paper three-dimensional pop-up, incorporating silhouettes and collage to bring your own creative story to life in this fun workshop. Families may also bring photographs to tell a personal story of a shared adventure or fond memory.

Ages 7 to 9 with an adult companion


Multi-disciplinary artist Gwen Charles’ installations merge elements of reality and magical realism with digital video and photography capturing the body moving through space and handcrafted wearable objects and textiles. Her works have been exhibited in galleries and festivals nationally and internationally, and she has participated in artist residencies in the U.S., Mexico, India, and Slovenia. She completed her MFA with Transart Institute in Berlin, and undergraduate studies at Parsons School of Design and The New School for Public Engagement, NY. As a resourceful community educator working with ages from preschool to senior citizens, she is deeply committed to providing inventive hands-on experiences to stimulate the creative growth of her students. Gwen’s studio is located on the historic Church Street in Montclair Center in Montclair, New Jersey.
