About this event
Join us for a two-part workshop led by artist Antonia Perez!

Paper Maché is a versatile method of using simple materials to make beautiful, long-lasting three-dimensional objects such as sculptures, masks, and household items. Participants in this two-part workshop will learn how to form an armature (the structure) from found materials, build up the form with paper maché (which means mashed paper in French) and refine their projects into finished artwork. Once you learn the basics of working with paper maché, you can use your imagination to create a wide variety of objects and forms!

Participation in the workshop requires your attendance in both workshops (September 16 and September 30) to learn all the steps needed to complete your project. People of every skill level are welcome, but this workshop is designed for people new to the art of Paper Maché.

Session Schedule:

Thursday, September 16: Learn how to create an armature (your sculpture’s foundation) from found materials.

Thursday, September 30: Learn how to work with Paper Maché, and refine your project into finished artwork.
