Description

Join us for presentations by artists and designers who will unveil both original sculpture and items of wearable paper couture.

Following the presentations, you will be invited to create your own paper artwork: craft a tissue flower corsage, fashion a chic paper bag hat, fold and style origami bow ties or bracelets, assemble a paper sculpture, or make a hand-bound journal—let your imagination soar! Snacks, wine, beer, and art supplies will be provided.

Inspired by Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave—on view through June 5, 2011, at the Legion of Honor—ArtPoint and the Museum of Craft and Design have assembled an amazing group of artists and designers who will discuss their concepts, processes, and creations.

Speakers will include:

Bacca Da Silva, Fashion Designer
Joseph Domingo, Fashion Designer
Julia Goodman, San Francisco–based paper sculpture artist
Claire Jackel, San Francisco–based artist working in painting and sculpture
