Paper cut-out collage workshops

An exciting new workshop designed by Rita Parniczky.

Rita invites you to her studio where you'll be introduced to paper cutting, an art form you will explore through collage, 3D construction and manipulation. You will learn a variety of simple techniques that will enable you to create sculptural artworks that take on new forms when exposed to light. The workshop aims to open your mind to the possibilities of paper cutting whilst giving you the practical skills you will need to bring your creative vision to life.

Rita works with weave, photography and mixed media exploring structure, visual change with light and the way we experience our environment. Her sculptural work is multi-award winning, has been exhibited (inter)nationally and is part of the V&A permanent collection. She lectures at Central Saint Martins, Norwich University of the Arts and The Glasgow School of Art.

Various dates available from February onwards.
