Paper plus Wire

Workshop Draht plus Papier - paper plus wire
30th of November 2019 at MachWerk Munich

As in the last years, there is a one-day workshop right before Christmas. Come and have a creative time-out for playing with paper, wire, and three-dimensionality! Draw inspiration from the possibilities of these two flexible materials as well as from organic forms and – especially – the spontaneous creations of your hands. Apart from wire and paper we may use yarn, found objects and whatever else may feel right. Resulting objects can range from poetic to wild, from abstract to figurative. And of course, there will also be suggestions for creating Christmassy works. While exploring various simple techniques, the focus will be on giving a lot of space to your creativity!

The workshop starts at 9.30 a.m. and ends at 4.30 p.m. There will be a lunch and coffee break.

Wire, paper, wallpaper glue and tools are avaible in the workshop. You basically need to bring yourself – and an interest in experimenting. If you want, you may also bring along

  • a choice of your favorite papers: for instance tissue paper, paper with organic fibers, crepe paper.
  • if available: your own wire tools
  • additional wire. Basic binding wire is provided. If you like to try coloured wires or thinner wires you find them in craft shops
  • Wall paper glue takes a while to dry. All purpose glue comes in handy if you need it to dry fast
  • Additional material of your choice: e.g. beads, buttons, fabric, yarn, found objects,…
  • optional: paper and pens for making sketches
  • a containter to transport your artwork home

  • Price per person: 75 EUR.

    Number of participants: minimum 4, maximum 8.

    The workshop takes place at the MachWerk (Schulstraße 1) , a jolly and well-equipped studio. The MachWerk is centrally located right at Rotkreuzplatz, which can be reached by subway, bus and tram.
