Summer School 2018: Process and Change

Moving Towards the 3rd Dimension

Possibilities for developing 3-dimensional forms using paper will be explored through this workshop.

Taking a series of 3-dimensional objects as our starting point we will explore these forms through various drawing, mark making and construction processes, building up a collection of experimental samples. Scrunch, fold, wind, wrap, stitch, loop, mould, build, layer, twist…

A deeper understanding of the objects and structures you start with will be gained through the processes we use and as flat surfaces go through changes, resulting in sculptural forms. The steps we will go through and the samples we produce could be used to develop future work or might result in more resolved 3-D pieces during the workshop itself.


Alice’s process-led practice is based on personal engagement with landscape. Working with natural fibres and gathered materials she employs natural dye techniques, print, stitch and weave in different combinations to create surfaces and structures. Alice is author of Natural Processes in Textile Art (Batsford, 2015).
