Workshop: Clay & Paper Lamp Making
Outline: This sculpture workshop explores 3D concepts through creating lamps. We will be working with paper and clay and exploring basic techniques, such as paper crimping and slab building. After mastering these techniques we will work towards creating a space-unique design that takes into account real-world lighting.
Estimated Time: 1-2 Hours, depending on complexity
- Air dry clay
- Paper (best if different types such as drawing paper, tissue paper, etc.

- Light source (fairy lights, LEDs, etc.)
Important Time Stamps:
Clay Making: Learn different techniques for working with clay
Light Exploration: Discover how light can effect the surrounding environment and how it interacts with the materials.
