Event description

Description

" I attended Ray Besserdin's master class to learn the starts of paper sculpting and the important basis and the tools for this magnificent art form. This was truly the best investment I have made in my life of a career artist because it formed the base skills for me. I came away from the course with new skills and an exciting idea ahead of me involving paper sculpture. Not just any simple paper sculpture you might see on the internet, but REAL sculpting. Ray was not only serious with his teaching and method of doing things but he also had a great humour! One of the best teachers in the arts field and in paper sculpting. I am very blessed to be able to learn with him. And it is true, he is a one of a kind in Australia in this art form. Thank you Ray for offering us the opportunity to learn an amazing art form with you." Chelle Destefano
