At Clerkenwell design week we stumbled across Su Blackwell (an artist and art director, working predominantly within the realm of paper sculpture) running a paper engineering workshop at Milliken and one of our Amtico Designers, Sarah Escott took part.
The workshop involved intricate cut-work to build a three dimensional watch constructed of paper, even the tiny hands were carefully cut and raised above the face.

It was a wonderful opportunity to return to hands-on craft and use a familiar material in a different way.
Take a look at how Sarah progressed:
