Paper Extravaganza

Paper Extravaganza

This workshop is an intensive investigation of an everyday and yet so wonderful material: PAPER
We will begin by learning something of the history of this age-old medium and then gather inspiration from contemporary cut paper artists creating innovative work today. Time will be spent experimenting with different papers and tools for cutting. Through cutting, folding, weaving and collage techniques you discover the strength and versatility of paper.

In this workshop you will make different book forms and objects to apply the techniques. For this workshop you do not need drawing experience, it challenges both beginners and advanced. Some templates will be provided.
