Strange bugs, very strange!

Create a 3D character for the quirkiest gallery in the world

Invent your strange bug with drawings, collage and a simple technique of pop-up (engineering of paper) so as to create the biggest gallery of characters in three dimensions in the world. Experiment with the combination of different ways of working with mixed techniques: cutting out, sticking paper and drawing with coloured pencils on a three-dimensional card which is produced with just one fold and cut out.

In case of rain, this workshop will be relocated in the Passeig de Picasso.
