Push the folded book concept into 3D!
Jul 5, 2020 - Jul 11, 2020
Workshop Fee: $1125
Class Size: 8
Utilizing several sculptural techniques and materials (wire, rattan, fabric) we will combine sculptural structures with book structures. Thinking three-dimensionally, we will explore concepts and narrative in new ways. Expecting new responses from our viewers, we will discuss how these structures can be viewed, handled, shared. Additionally, we will push the concept of the folded book structure into our 3D explorations and see what happens when these things collide!
