3 Dimensional Papercraft Sculpture
A fun, imaginative workshop with artist Sam Roddan using variety of materials and techniques to create 3D paper sculptures. Utilising a variety of mark making media from Posca paint markers to wet graphite sticks and paint, we’ll create and pattern papers to sculpt into 3d forms with multi-layered, detailed designs. Students will be supported and encouraged to use their imaginations to design their own sculptures which could be harmonious abstracts, or inspired by fantasy lands or creatures, wherever their imagination takes them – they will develop original ideas and creations learning skills and techniques that can be continued at home.
