FREE Workshop series with Stephanie Reynolds

Introducing Universe of Paper – an exciting community arts project that is part of the Paper on Skin™ suite of activities taking place in 2024.

Paper on Skin™ has had a long-held dream to create a ‘paper wonderland’ – a large scale, immersive, sensory rich environment, made completely from paper, which patrons can enjoy prior to seeing the gala. With thanks to the Regional Arts Fund, Devonport City Council and Creative Paper, this year we can bring this dream to reality!

The paper landscape will fill the Market Square Pavilion, providing the setting for a magical preshow soirée. Universe of Paper will be a testament to the strong sense of community and culture which characterises our region.

This installation will be created in a series of workshops, led by paper artist Stephanie Reynolds, to be held across the northern part of Tasmania through the period April to end of July.

Participants will learn how to build a range of simple and more complex paper objects. As we move closer to installation time, the various components created by all the communities involved will be combined.

Every person who contributes will be acknowledged in the final artwork.

*This workshop is suitable for ages 16+

It requires no prior learning or art ability and all materials are supplied.

Self-serve tea and coffee will be available.

Participants are encouraged to bring along their own lunch or visit the onsite cafe Seventy Acres for delicious coffee and snacks.
