This two-day workshop offers the opportunity to create wall sculpture using the medium of paper mache.

Class will begin with a brief demonstration on how to create cut cardboard armatures, and how to use paper mache paper strips to transform them into compelling works of art. There will then be plenty of time for participants to create their own relief works. As this is a very innovative art form, all levels are welcome. Most materials will be provided, please see list for suggested items.
