Paper engineering uses thoughtful incisions and well placed folds to turn a 2-Dimensional sheet of paper into a 3-Dimensional objet d’art. Drawing inspiration from NGV Design Week and the Melbourne Art Book fair, create your own bespoke paper artwork over a glass of wine with Melbourne paper engineer, Louise Seymour from Paperlab.
All materials are provided and no experience necessary.
Facilitator, Louise Seymour
