Artist Vanya Lambrecht Ward presents a workshop on The Art of Paper Folding, generally known as origami. This amazing art not only allows us to form a bridge between our 2D and our 3D understanding of the world but also has found all sorts of applications in our lives, from space travel to medicine. One fold and we move from the flat surface to the world of objects and find ourselves with new options and ideas. Folding can be free form or structured, and the results can be both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually intriguing.
This workshop is for anybody interested in working with paper (teachers, artists, mathematicians and complete novices). The workshops will focus on modular origami but we will also explore other techniques over the two sessions. You will hopefully leave with skills for many forms that folding can offer for thinking, making and designing.
As part of the sessions there will be time for questions and an additional instruction pack will be sent out.
This series of two workshops will take place on ZOOM from 8:15pm-9:15pm. on 16th and 23rd July. Further details and a list of required materials (just paper!) will be provided when you book. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
