PAPERMAKING FALL CONCENTRATION
October 1 – November 10, 2023 (six weeks)
Paper: From the Inside Out
Handmade paper has a special magic and a limitless range of surfaces, textures, colors, and forms; this workshop will be a thorough immersion in its possibilities. We’ll cover the preparation of cotton, abaca, linen rag, and flax pulps along with pigmenting and mixing. Other processes will include small and large sheet formation, pulp painting, stenciling, blow-outs, wet collage, embedding, watermarks, drying and finishing treatments, surface manipulation, and sculptural methods with high-shrinkage pulps. By the end of the session, students will understand handmade paper as a complete medium. All levels.
