Bauhaus Curved-Crease Sculpture Workshop

Saturday, April 256:00pm–7:00pm

On April 25, at 7pm, Mike Tanis leads a workshop on a paper-folding technique to make curved-crease sculptures. He'll bring some examples and demonstrate the basic folding techniques to make hyperbolic paraboloids that connect together to create a larger formation.

Josef Albers taught a preliminary paper folding course at the Bauhaus, 1927-1928, which is the earliest known reference to curved-crease paper sculptures. This technique is now being used in the study of mathematics, architecture, robotics, nanotechnology, and biology.

Following the workshop is BYOB.4. Paper-folding can continue throughout the night to create a large sculpture that can be projected on. Both events are free.
