Books & Paper Summer Session 3
June 23 – July 5, 2019
Sculpting with Handmade Paper
This workshop will explore the sculptural potential of handmade paper. We’ll focus on casting and draping processes using found or cloth molds, permanent armatures, and a variety of plant fibers, including cotton, abaca, flax, and kozo. Students will explore methods for producing high-shrinkage, translucent papers, skin-like qualities, and mysterious surfaces. We’ll create three-dimensional forms incorporating paper sheets, pulp painting, collage, drawing, and more. We’ll pay special attention to personal vision and translating ideas used with other media into paper. All levels. Code 03PM
