In this workshop you'll learn the delicate art of origami and paper folding, creating a delightful geometric paper sculpture.
There is something incredibly satisfying in turning a flat piece of paper into a 3D wonder, and this is the magic of origami. Calming, highly addictive and a peaceful creative activity, origami requires very little equipment and lots of concentration.
Athena will be guiding you to learn three basic unit folds. You will then get to choose which of these that you'd like to use to build your own geometric ball decoration.
Each student will receive:
• Papers to fold
• a bone folder
All equipment will be provided, along with guidance form Athena.
Please note: geometric origami requires lots and lots of folding, therefore there will be lots of repetition in this workshop. Do not fear - it will definitely be worth it!
When: Saturday 29th June 2019, 2.00pm to 4.00pm
Where: Walcot Chapel - just around the corner from our shop at 134 Walcot Street, Bath.
Is there an age limit for the workshop?
Anyone can attend our workshops, though unfortunately we do not allow children under 12. Those under 16 we do request are accompanied by an adult. Please do get in touch if you'd like to discuss.
What should I bring?
You don't need anything - we'll provide everything you need for using in the workshop, and you'll get to keep your folded creations.
What are my transport/parking options getting to you?
There is parking in Bath in several locations - the nearest to us would be the Podium car park or the Cattlemarket car park. Train services to Bath Spa are very regular and the walk to Walcot Chapel takes around 25 minutes.
Please ensure you can attend the workshop before booking, as tickets for the On Paper Festival are non-refundable and non-transferable. If you are ill, shipwrecked, or unable to attend for any other reason, I’m afraid we are unable to swap your date, though you are more than welcome to find a friend that can take your place.
In the rare circumstance we are unable to run the workshop your ticket will be valid to book onto another workshop.
