Benja Harney’s Paperform Workshop Sydney

ABDA are teaming up with Benja Harney for a paperform workshop like no other!

Take this rare opportunity to enter the Paperform studio and see first hand where the paper magic happens. Over 3 hours, participants will explore the numerous and dynamic techniques of the humble medium of paper forms – cut, fold, construct and dream.

Starting with the basics, we will build our skills through the workshop creating sculptural paper assets that combine into dynamic and unique forms which participants will take home with them at the end of the class.

This is a workshop for inventive people who have good dexterity and like to think outside the creative box!

Benja Harney is a paper engineer. Working both in Australia and internationally, he is renowned as a pioneer in his field. As a professional creative, artist and educator, over the last 12 years Harney has led his Sydney-based studio, Paperform, to develop a body of work that pushes the possibilities of the paper medium.

Pop-up books, paper sculpture, installation, illustration, packaging, fine art, fashion, animation, set design – Harney makes anything and everything possible within this endlessly inventive material.
