Paul will show how the folding of sheet materials such as fabric, plastic and wood has become one of the most vibrant languages of contemporary art and design around the world and how folding connects design to the wider-worlds of engineering, new materials and sustainability. Wow!
Paul Jackson was the first person outside Japan to make a career from folding paper. In a 35-year career, he has written almost 40 books, taught in more than 80 Schools of Design and undertaken many commissions and consultancies. Fine Art trained in England, his folded paper sculptures are regularly exhibited.
