Using the component qualities of surface, shape and edge as a starting point, students will construct an elaborate and intricate sculptural form made entirely from paper. Participants will investigate traditional paper-crafting techniques and integrate them with wholly unique methods they discover. Velliquette will also share tips and techniques based on his own work.
