Event description

Description

This lighthearted course taught by paper artist Eric Gjerde focuses on the practical hands-on experience of working with paper. As part of his first-year Preliminary Courses at the Bauhaus School, Josef Albers would task students with creating various structures and forms out of simple paper, exploring the spaces, shapes, and innate qualities of the material itself. These exercises led them on a path of self-discovery and observational “learning through doing.”

Eric will lead a daily workshop covering five different styles and forms of paper play; exercises directly from Josef Albers himself, and new, innovative methods from the world of complex origami. Participants will make their own creations and will have the opportunity to pursue further discovery outside of the course. An instructional booklet will be provided for all participants as an additional learning tool for exploration.

Skills required: a desire to learn, a willingness to explore, and some practical experience with folding and crumpling paper – a global knowledge we all share!
