Instructor Béatrice Coron

Saturday February 23, 2019

In this intense workshop of serious fun, we will explore unique ways to tell stories: Participants cut their designs into Tyvek to create stories that can be displayed and worn. Design compositions and discover paper-cutting skills to make paper dimensional with basic pop-up and paper-sculpture techniques. We’ll also discuss adaptation to other materials, such as glass or metal, and the digital possibilities of 3D programs and animations.
