Welcome to the amazing world of Paper Sculpture

by Shelagh Wing


Make Traditional Paper Sculptures in a Half or Full Day Workshop.
These are 3D figures (from 6 inches high up to life size), NOT Papier Mache (Papermache) or Origami.

A list of materials/tools required is provided before the workshop and templates for the easier figures are loaned at the workshop.

A large, detailed figure (around 1 metre high) can be made in a full days' workshop.
A smaller, simpler figure can be made in an evening workshop

The ideal event and something different for Schools, Womens' Institutes, Flower Arrangers, Flower Festivals, Arts/Crafts Clubs and Church Groups.

A display of a variety of figures are always brought along to workshops as examples and later, offered for sale or auction.

If you are thinking of organising an Art workshop on any topic not mentioned above, please enquire
If you are thinking of a specialist Commission, also do please enquire


I have woven pictures from photographs for many years, including woodland scenes and seascapes which are much more interesting than paintings as thicker wool gives a 3D texture to the weaving. Although weaving is complicated for a workshop, it makes an unusual subject. Examples are always available for demonstrations as the larger ones are not for sale.

An exhibition of my work was held in Doncaster Library some time ago, and all the works for sale were bought.
See the Weaving Pictures page for some photos of my Weaving
