This deceptively humble material can be crafted to stunning effect. Paper sculpting is a lesser-known art-form that has many variations. In this series of workshops, designer Dan Maier will introduce you to some of the principles of cutting, folding, and manipulating paper with gratifying results. Using nature as our inspiration we will create foliage and flower pieces which can be used for wall decor, garlands, greetings cards, table decoration, or 3D artwork that can be box-framed.
Alongside mastering the techniques, students will be encouraged to develop their own designs, enabling them to create pieces for themselves or friends and family which can be personalised.
Suitable for adults who have some experience of using a craft knife.
Dan Maier graduated from Central St Martins in Textiles, but her career has involved working in numerous media, both on intricate and enormous scales. She has created artwork for window displays, cruise ships and West End theatres, as well as selling her designs to Liberty, Harvey Nichols and around the world. Most recently she has designed an Art Crossing in Southgate and a campervan exterior. She loves sharing her wealth of knowledge and the joyful and therapeutic elements of making. Her workshops are always relaxed, where students can immerse themselves in a creative process, providing an escape from every day cares.
