Richard Sweeney’s latest body of paper sculptures is showing at the Escape Art Centre in Tonbridge, Kent, from 2nd February – 16th March 2022. Inspired by birds in flight, flowing water and clouds, the latest series of sculptures was created using curved-pleated watercolour paper. The collection includes Sweeney’s largest wall-mounted piece to date, Flight Sequence (above).
I’ll be holding paper sculpture workshops at the Escape art Centre in Tonbridge, Kent. The two hour session is an introduction to paper folding techniques, including pleating and curved folding, with all materials provided allowing you to create unique sculptural forms. Tickets are £20 and can be booked at the link below for the following dates:
I had been watching a fair bit of birdlife whilst out walking last year; here are some photographs from one winter morning in 2021, including a swan cleaning its wing, and a gull caught diving into the water.

There will be another chance to see these works at the Escape Art Centre in Tonbridge, Kent from 22nd February 2022.
