Paper Clay Workshop

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

20 Mar 2022 to 10 Apr 2022 Weekly Event

Anne Palmer, Eden Unearthed artist, will take you through the basics of Paper mâché clay sculpture making with these 4 session workshops.

Participants will come away with a collection of small hand-made paper mâché leaves that can be displayed inside or outdoors. We will explore the garden and examine different types of foliage as we build our own sculptural forms. A special behind the scenes tour of the centre will conclude the four part, half day, workshop series.

20th March: Explore the garden, draw sample leaves, cut wire armature, and cover the pieces with a layer of recycled paper mâché using the traditional technique. The leaves will be left to dry at the centre.

27th March: This week we will make paper mâché clay using paper clay using plaster and recycled paper.

3rd April: During this session we will cover the other side of the leaves with paper mâché clay and discuss different ways to finish the leaves.

10th April: In this final session, we will prepare and paint the surfaces with metallised paints or participants own choice of finish.

While the first side is drying, we will take a behind the scenes tour of Eden Gardens with the exhibition curator, Meredith Kirton.
