Contemplate the Wild

Paper Artist Zoe Bradley creates a festive workshop at Hide Wales.

“The workshops are more than teaching a craft, it is about sharing my experiences and inspiring others to take a different creative approach.”

“It’s as much about the process of creating as it is the success of what you create.”

The paper workshop was about letting your mind free, and taking time to be immersed in your own creative approach whilst guided by the techniques of hand-sculpting paper by artist Zoe Bradley.

The venue for this workshop was very important to me, it needed to be surrounded by nature and be both restful and contemplative. Hide, had all these qualities, allowing our guests to switch off, relax and get immersed in creativity.

The Hide Pavilion is surrounded by nature, woodlands and views over the dramatic Jurassic Heritage Coastline, a perfect reflection of my work as most of my sculptures are inspired by natural forms.

The workshops were intimate and inclusive, we ran a morning and afternoon session with our guest’s who we’re introduced to folding and scoring, using the signature Bradley techniques, transforming the papers by adding texture and creating form, from our folding techniques.

We created a Zoe Bradley paper folding tool kit for each of our creators to use during the workshop to enable them to replicate the Zoe Bradley technique.

As an artist studio we are keen to teach the art of paper craft to anyone with a desire and passion to want to learn a new skill and come away with something unique and tangible in their hands. We want to inspire others to experiment with paper, its potential as a material is endless and we want you to share with us your journey in paper sculpting.

Be sure to Hashtag #zoebradley #zoebradleyworkshop when you have finished your paper creations.
