Mixed Media/Sculpture: Anna Hepler

July 7-12

From Flat to Round: Exploring the Sculptural Properties of Paper, Cardboard, and Plywood-– Paper can be scored and folded to produce origami animals or simple solids such as cubes and dodecahedrons. Cardboard can be glued, stacked, and folded to produce objects of durability and large size, and plywood can be easily cut with a jigsaw and slotted, glued, and screwed together to create sculpture and furniture. This workshop is  a low-tech celebration of these materials that are purchased in sheets, but have the potential to become forms, and sculptures in the round. Participants will build models using paper and cardboard, then enlarge their ideas as sculptural or functional free-standing forms.
