Pepakura

As part of International Women’s Week Coventry’s FabLab hosted a Pepakura Papercraft session at the WOW Cafe in the City Arcade today.

Pepakura is a Japanese form of papercraft, similar to origami. But whereas origami involves making an object from a single sheet of paper, using just folding techniques, pepakura incorporates cutting and gluing to make a more complex 3D construction.

The paper model being made and decorated at the session today was a 3D sculpture of a rabbit by the German artist Jan Krummrey. Jan has been making and designing pepakuras for many years and is famous for his DIY tutorials on instuctables.com. If you missed today’s session, but would like to have a go at making your own bunny in time for Easter, there is another Pepakura Papercraft workshop at 2pm on Saturday 12th March at Sapphire Papercuts, also located in the City Arcade, Coventry.
