Paper on Skin™

Paper Play – Universe of Paper Workshops

Sign up for one of our workshops with Stephanie Reynolds as we prepare for Universe of Paper.

Introducing Universe of Paper – an exciting community arts project that is part of the Paper on Skin™ suite of activities taking place in Devonport during 2024. Paper on Skin™ is an international wearable paper art competition which invites Australian and international artists to design a wearable garment which is made from at least 80% paper.  

Paper on Skin™ has had a long-held dream to create a ‘paper wonderland’ – a large-scale, immersive, sensory-rich environment, made completely from paper, which patrons can enjoy prior to seeing the gala. With thanks to the Regional Arts Fund, Devonport City Council and Creative Paper, this year we can bring this dream to reality!  

The paper landscape will fill the Market Square Pavilion, providing the setting for a magical preshow soirée. Universe of Paper will be a testament to the strong sense of community and culture which characterises our region.  

This installation will be created in a series of workshops, led by Stephanie Reynolds, to be held across the northern part of Tasmania through the period April to end of July.  Participants will learn how to build a range of simple and more complex paper objects. As we move closer to installation time, the various components created by all the communities involved will be combined.  

Every person who contributes will be acknowledged in the final artwork. Find out more at https://burnieartscouncil.com/universe-of-paper
