Constructed Paper Artworks

Germany

Event Dates

The workshop takes place from August 29, 2024 until August 29, 2024.

Workshop Initiator

Larisa Semke Larisa Semke

Workshop Details

In this workshop, you will learn how to create an amazing relief with pyramid-like paper components under guidance, similar to Larigami No. 1. Color, size, and arrangement can be varied individually and creatively. The individual shapes are cut out, folded, and glued by hand. This part of the process is repeated, as each relief consists of numerous individual bodies. It is very relaxing – almost like meditation. Afterwards, the relief is arranged and assembled. Depending on the desired size, it can also be expanded and completed at home.

The price includes: cutting patterns (also available as a PDF upon request), high-quality paper in several colors, DIN-A3 base, glue.

Please bring: scissors, bone folder (if available).
