Our next workshop will be Sculpting with Paper, led by Wessex Sculptor member Madeleine Page, on Saturday 16th February 2019, 10am – 4pm at The Barn studio.
Madeleine’s fascinating piece, Angel of History, pictured above, says so much about her relationship with paper! She tells us more about how she will share her enthusiasm and knowledge with us…….
‘Paper – it’s ubiquitous – it wraps things, we write on it, draw, print and paint on it, use it to cover our walls, keep our eggs from breaking, read from it, use it as insulation material. But do you know how many ways it can be used as an art material in its own right?
This workshop will be an introduction to this interesting, very common but magical material. I’ll show you some of the ways it can be used create amazing sculptures and 3D objects. Also some of things that you can’t do with paper! There will be a chance to experiment with using paper in a variety of ways, and perhaps to make something out of paper that you would never have thought possible.
We won’t spend a lot of time on actual paper making, but it will include a demo of how to make a sheet of your own paper to help you get started. Its very easy, and gives an idea of the kind of material that you might want to work with.’
Members £35, Non-Members £45.
Light refreshments provided, bring your own lunch.
