Changing Perspective: Experimenting with Paper

This workshop is about changing your approach to paper. We’ll explore ways to transform paper—both technically and conceptually—into more than just a flat surface. Students will use simple tools to turn basic sheets into sculptural forms by cutting, folding, collaging, weaving, and using a variety of 3-d paper constructions. We’ll use natural and synthetic papers and create samples that will introduce you to the nuances of the material. There will be daily demonstrations, discussions of contemporary work, and time for experimentation. All levels. Code 07D
