Explore the potential of paper cutting, folding and construction techniques to create
your own unique sculptural forms with paper artists Richard Sweeney and Andy Singleton.

With demonstrations and one-to-one help from the artists, learn the basic techniques of
paper manipulation, including pattern cutting, pleating and modular form-making. An experimental
approach to the material is encouraged, which will allow beginners and experienced folders alike to
explore the creative potential of sculpted paper.

Richard Sweeney creates paper sculptures and installations inspired by architecture, organic
structures, and the the unique properties of paper itself. Commissions include works for Selfridges
and Dunhill, London. Previous workshop experience includes the Barbican London, and at universities
in the UK, Germany and Denmark.

Andy Singleton works in response  to the the natural and man made world through intricate paper
cutting, paper sculpture, installations and hand drawn illustration. He has created commissioned
works for Liberties of London, Kensington Palace, and conducted workshops at West Dean College,
the V&A museum and Tate Modern London.
