In Irish folklore, with fall come púcas (shape-shifting creatures), haunted houses, fairy forts, and sundry spooky phenomena. The Irish illustrator, stage designer, and graphic novelist Maeve Clancy explains the various legends surrounding the equinox, and teaches participants of this interactive workshop how to create a Celtic-inspired pop-up page that they can later multiply and assemble into their very own pop-up book!

This event takes place at 1pm ET / 6pm IST


You will need the following materials to make your pop-up book:

2 Pieces of 8'11 paper (called A4 Paper in Ireland) or cardstock  
1 pair of scissors 
1 glue stick  
Something to draw with (colored pencils, markers, etc.)
