Course Overview

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This could certainly be said about the cardboard that we throw out on a daily basis. Bring a second life to recycled cardboard with your creativity and imagination.

Students will learn to make a coin bank, robot and F1 car out of cardboard, under full-time cardboard sculptor Bartholomew Ting. The cardboard templates for this workshop are set, but students will appreciate how the principles of the design can be scaled up to build larger creations to intrigue their friends and family.

About the Instructor


Bartholomew Ting graduated from NUS Business School and landed in a multinational packaging corporate where he learnt about the properties of cardboard and how to maximise its strength in construction. He moved on to an exhibition company, learning to utilise design software to convert 2D prints of cardboard cut-outs to stunning 3D sculptures. Carving out his own path as the only cardboard sculptor in Singapore, Ting’s cardboard repertoire now includes F1 cars, furniture, dinosaurs, a bear head dome and a fire engine. He runs numerous workshops for the public and schools, and hopes to one day work with children to design and build a cardboard-only playground.
