In the bustle of the city, let's create our own personal and miniature green spaces. This workshop will be a fun and educational exploration of four basic paper sculpture techniques and using them together to create a paper diorama of plants and flowers. Samir Bharadwaj will teach the basics of modular origami 3D frames, paper-cutting, quilling, and paper creasing for sculpture. He will also guide participants with using these simple methods to craft unique and personal paper plant arrangements.
By the end of this workshop participants will have learnt and practiced several different techniques of paper sculpture. They will have the confidence to experiment with and build their own cut, folded and sculpted pieces using the most appropriate techniques from their repertoire. Each participant will receive a take-home kit of materials and instructions.
Note: All materials required for the workshop will be provided.
Papernautic is a creative studio centered on the idea of making papercraft more approachable, engaging and useful. We conceive new experiments and learning tools, to spread the wonder of paper art to new minds and fingers. Samir believes that crafts like origami and paper sculpture are a great, non-threatening, introduction to what ought to be a core human ideal: "Make something."
