Event Details

  • Course Description

    At The Institute arts and creative courses are their forte and paper engineering is the new kid on the block.

    Taught by dynamic New Yorker Michael Caputo, this is a short fun introduction to the intricate world of paper engineering for parents and children. 

     

  • What's Included 

    Come and create a simple pop-up card and learn the mechanics of creating movement through clever cutting, folding and manipulating. Michael will first introduce some basic principles and then show participants how to get started with their own cards. With Christmas and Hannukah round the corner, this is a great opportunity to make your own really unique seasonal cards and share some creative fun with your child.

He was previously a designer at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, an art director and paper engineer at Sabuda and Reinhart Studios and a senior novelty designer at Grosset & Dunlap.

So what is this Academy thing?
 
We're very excited to be launching The Mumsnet Academy - a brand new enterprise which aims to curate a portfolio of fantastic courses to fit around family commitments and busy working lives.
 
A while back we asked you what courses you would like and the programme of masterclasses, workshops, and events we've come up with is a reflection of your  responses.
 
To help us deliver the programme we have enlisted some fabulous experts in a range of fields as well as teaming up with some great partners who have a reputation for delivering high-quality, life-changing courses.
 
This collaborative approach allows us to offer a programme across a range of different subjects including entrepreneurship, business, technology, social media, blogging, history of art, creative writing, publishing, gardening, philosophy, finance, fashion as well as courses concerned with self-improvement and the concept of learning to live wisely and well. Some of these courses will be skill-based, while others will explore concepts, theory and ideas. 
 
If we've missed something you think is a must, fear not, we will be adding classes to our portfolio all the time so please drop us a line or complete the suggestion box on our website.
 
One of the things that we felt was important was to ensure our Academy courses are available across the UK and we are pleased to announce that we will be running events in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester from day one. We are also keen to develop some online courses and hope to announce the first of these later this year.
 
While our courses are scheduled at times which are more convenient for those with young children, they are absolutely open to everyone. Ultimately, the overall aim of the Mumsnet Academy is to bring people together in a thought-provoking and fulfilling environment where there is a universal willingness to explore ideas, develop skills, and learn from experts as well from each other.
