What’s Your Wunderkammer? Experimenting in 3D with Paper and Collage
Duluth artist Susanna Gaunt introduces techniques in collage and shaping paper to create two-and three-dimensional pieces in this workshop. Susanna’s work is inspired from observations of the natural world, natural history museums and their 17th century precursors, the Wunderkammer; as private collections of art and rare specimens, these curiosity cabinets strove to reveal the wonders of our world.
The class will discuss what they collect and observe and how it can inspire the creative process. From there, they will use collage and shaping paper. Both 2-and 3-dimensional techniques will be introduced and demonstrated to allow for a variety of forms of expression. Time will be given for participants to generate ideas and experiment with collage to create their own artworks based on what they collect and what inspires them.
A selection of vintage boxes will be available for $10, paid directly to the artist. Participants are also welcome to bring their own small boxes or containers (about the size of a shoe box).
The cost of this workshop is $25 for Duluth Art Institute members and $30 for nonmembers.
