Paper and Wire Sculpture Workshop
with Jimmie Nord
Saturday, February 22, 2020
9:00am to 4:00pm
The purpose of the workshop is to learn the process of making paper sculptures on a wire frame. All designs will become part of a large installation in the RAA gallery during the Focus on Fiber show which opens in May. Designs will be returned to participants at the end of the fiber show in June.
The workshop will begin with a description of the elements of art used to make these sculptures. Examples of this type of art work will be provided.
The meat of the experience will be the step-by-step making of your own paper sculpture with the tools and materials provided. You will be guided through constructing a wire form and then attaching tissue paper. You will leave the workshop with the skills to construct your own creations at home.
Jimmie Nord has a Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. He works mainly in wood and metal, and his art is often a playful look into construction and the tools and equipment that are used. His art has been exhibited widely. Nord is a lecturer at Humboldt State University teaching 3D and 2D foundations, ceramics and special topics in sculpture. Visit Nord's Website
