paper artifact from the Bauhaus

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.
