This is a single-session online workshop.
Just in time for Halloween, students will design compositions and learn paper-cutting skills to make paper multi-dimensional and wearable with basic pop-up and paper-sculpture techniques. Adaptation to other materials such as glass or metal will be discussed. Tips, tricks and resources will be provided in this intense workshop of serious fun.
This is a fast-paced workshop with many technique demonstrations. Students will finish the workshop with an arsenal of skills they can use to create their own paper wearables.
All experience levels are welcome, but students should be aware that class will move quickly.
Community Workshops are limited to 30 students with a low class fee to foster accessibility.

- Cutting mat
