The ancient art of paper sculpture has been around as long as...well, paper! Before paper came on the scene, most people would probably have used bark, but that’s for another project.

Paper artists, feeling a bit lonely, got creative and came up with some instant friends, their new “Paper Pals”. This video shows one of many ways of working with paper to create characters, sculptures and puppets.

This latest video from Mark will teach you how to create your own ‘Paper Pals’. Learn how to transform circles of paper into 3D characters with different sized paper cones that you can glue together using this template to get you started.

Email us a photo of your paper pals and maybe a short story about their adventures to livingartssa@lwb.org.au and it may even pop up in our in an upcoming edition of the Living Arts Creative Times monthly e-newsletter!

Join Phi from the Living Arts team in this video to read Whoever You Are by Mem Fox and then get creative with a quick tutorial on making Paper People.

When decorating your paper people think about how they could represent different people, these could be people all over the world or perhaps the people you’re missing right now. Make sure you send us a photo of your paper people, we love seeing what you’ve been creating at home!

Email us a photo to livingartssa@lwb.org.au and it may even pop up in our Guerilla Gallery in an upcoming edition of the Living Arts Creative Times monthly e-newsletter!
