Lumifold: Fold Your Own Paper Lamp

Lumifold
When:
11 Jun 2016
15:00 - 17:00
Location:
Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia, Level 6 Terrace Entrance (Circular Quay West Side), Sydney NSW 2000

Immerse yourself in the Vivid experience by making a beautiful lamp to take home using a technique called Origami Sekkei (mathematical paper folding). 

Lumifold workshop participants will receive direct instruction and pre-scored paper to make a lamp that will be illuminated with coloured LED lights. They will also be given ideas on how to customise their lamp.

After the workshop, participants will be able to join Vivid Lights by carrying their illuminated lamp with them as they tour the exhibits.

The project demonstrates how the Arts can encourage an understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

A family friendly event, this workshop is suitable for children 10 years and over, but younger children will be able to manage the folding with assistance.

All materials are included in the cost of the Lumifold workshop.
