Going Off the Wall: Playful Thinking in 3D with Nathalie Miebach

Reinvigorate and expand your thinking about spatial movement and color through the versatile and ancient practice of weaving. Using a variety of papers as our main materials, we’ll explore playful ways of building forms and juxtaposing colors using plaiting, twining and the hexagon weave. Every day, we’ll sketch out 3D ideas and build sculptures to push and prod our own inhibitions. This workshop is about pulling us out of over-thinking decisions, rediscovering new ways of using color to build form and exploring the versatility of woven paper surfaces and objects. Open to all levels.
