Books & Paper Summer Session 1
May 24 – June 5, 2020
Body & Landscape: The Large-Scale Pour
An expansion on Nagashizuki and Nepalese papermaking, the large-scale paper pour is an active, environmental process. We’ll begin with fundamentals such as bark cooking, pulp beating, and vat dyeing. Then we’ll collaborate to make 8 x 8 foot sheets of paper while exploring pattern-making and mark-making techniques such as spraying, dripping, sprinkling, wet collaging, and embedding. Students will build their own 4 x 8 foot moulds for class and home use. In this physically demanding workshop, we’ll work indoors and out, individually and collectively. All levels. Code 01PM
