Inspired by a listener’s costume design project, this episode explores the possibilities – and problems – of dressing up with paper. As Lucy struggles with her own creativity (paper patterns are harder than they look!), Ben charts the colourful, stretchy history of crêpe and looks at artists and designers who have folded and glued to make striking fashions. Join us for a crafting session with help from Jane Asher, Dennison’s and an awful lot of sellotape
