Flat / Not Flat: Sculptural Paper
July 28, 2019 – August 3, 2019
This workshop is for artists in any media who want to explore the surprising possibilities of paper. In class students will utilize paper as ground, medium and fiber. You will use simple tools to transform basic sheets of paper into sculptural forms by cutting, folding, weaving and using a variety of three-dimensional paper constructions. Surface treatments such as collage, cyanotype and perforation will also be investigated. The actions of opening and closing, folding and unfolding, expanding and collapsing are the conceptual guide as you discover and learn about the structural components of paper. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
