I’ll be speaking and running a workshop at Birmingham Design Festival this year on the 6th and 7th June.
My talk is titled Paper Worlds and Conscious Creativity and I will be sharing some of my latest projects which are focused on the natural world and conservation to help raise awareness and highlight the ever-growing gap between humans and nature. What we communicate through our imagery can have a massive impact on what is considered to be the social norm. As creatives we produce imagery that millions see everyday so lets try to make it mindful and contest what we don’t agree with so that our work fits in-line with what our world needs today.
In the workshop we’ll be exploring the basic techniques of paper-cutting and modelling. We will be working with a paper frame to create 3D animal sculptures to take home.
