Paper Sculptures Inspired by Grayson Perry

The paper sculpture resources, designed by Alex Josephine Gwynne, have been inspired by The Vanity of Small Differences by Grayson Perry. 

A fun and creative activity for learners of all ages, please do build and design sculptures inspired by the Collection and your visit to see the art works. These are also ideal for remote learning, making it possible to create the exhibition via paper sculpture in the comfort of your own learning environment. This is a useful reflection tool considering the exhibition, pieces, characters and learning from the space.

Use the blank template to remake yourself, or the templates to build key figures from each tapestry. We suggest printing these on white printer card paper, A4 or A3 160 gsm.
