Berlin workshops at Berlinische Galerie Jan 05 & Jan 12

Hello all! just a quick note that I’ll be visiting Berlin these next two weeks giving workshops at the Berlinische Galerie – the first workshop is sold out but I believe there are still a few seats for the second one on January 12th. This is a series of workshops called “Vorkurs üben” organized by the Bauhaus Archiv as part of the “Original Bauhaus” exhibition. I’m looking forward to presenting these workshops on behalf of the Bauhaus Archiv – I’ve done several things for them over the last two years and this is a great closure to the 2019 Centenary year of the Bauhaus for me!

Upcoming workshops in Minneapolis and Berlin

Hello all – I have three upcoming workshop dates to announce, for my series “Paper Engineering from the Bauhaus: Josef Albers to the Modern Day“. Paper artist Eric Gjerde leads a course of experimentation and discovery in the spirit of Josef Alber’s preliminary course, using historical paper art exercises and creations from the Bauhaus School as well as modern designs and ideas that build on the original concepts. Students will take techniques and create their own works within various design constraints, in line with Bauhaus methodology. Our intent is to open minds and expand horizons (while also having a lot of fun playing with paper!) In line with the original Bauhaus workshops we will be working with our hands and basic tools only in an entirely analog format.
