Paper Construction & Collage Exploration: Minerals, Liquids, and Mimicry
Led by Bubbler Artist-in-Residence: Lydia and Riley
What does a landlubber know of the sea? In this workshop, simple methods of paper construction, drawing, and collage will be used to engage with and wonder at our inland surroundings and its connection to the geologic record and the history of the sea. Together we will mimic, approximate, transform and/or disguise our observations as paper crystals, hyperbolic flatworms, imagined coral reefs, and other aqueous creations, building our own imagined habitat.
