THE PAPER WORKSHOP By OMGFLORENCE

THE PAPER WORKSHOP

2 giorni di lavoro pratico e creativo guidati da una Paper Artist. Impara nuove tecniche e scopri le potenziali applicazioni della carta.

L’idea di “#OMGDeepDives – The Paper Workshop: Starting point of a generous material” è quella di esplorare in profondità la carta come materiale con il potere di adattarsi alle forme più diverse, attraverso la conoscenza delle sue caratteristiche, i suoi pregi, i suoi limiti e le sue potenziali applicazioni. Attraverso il workshop apprenderemo un nuovo approccio per la realizzazione di modelli e prototipi in carta, e altri metodi fondamentali nel processo creativo e per la soluzione di problemi nel mondo della moda e del design.

“#OMGDeepDives – The Paper Workshop: Starting point of a generous material” è frutto della collaborazione tra OMG Florence! e Diana Beltrán Herrera.

The workshop will be held on Saturday and Sunday October 8-9, 2016 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. The two-day program is structured to progressively develop dexterity and confidence in working with paper through specific exercises.


Starting from the basics, in the “Shapes and Developments” exercise participants will get familiar with paper and learn the necessary techniques to be able to create more complex shapes in the “Volumes” and “Combined Objects” exercises. In the final exercise of the workshop, “Space”, participants will experiment by mixing the different techniques previously learned to create an original composition within the confined space of a box.


Exercises are structured in phases to enhance participant’s learning experience:

• Technique: technical explanation and demonstration by the artist
• Exploration: application and practice of the technique on the material
• Development: multiplication and repetition of the basic technique to expand to more complex forms
• Application: group reflection on professional and everyday applications
• Socialization: group exchange of the creative experience


Each day will conclude with a photoshoot for participants to document their experience and paper creations for sharing and portfolio enrichment.
