BOOKS & PAPER SUMMER SESSION 3
JUNE 18–30, 2023
Going Large with Papermaking
We’ll make large-scale paper works using different fibers through creative sheet-forming methods and fashioning assemblage and modular elements. We’ll start with fiber preparation—by hand and with the Hollander beater—and insights into pigmenting our pulps. Sheet forming techniques will include the deckle box, sprayed sheets, poured sheets, vacuum-formed sheets in 2D or in relief, and independently- or collaboratively-formed Himalayan-style sheets. The tone of the workshop will be one of experimentation and discovery as you gain experience in using paper to create larger works or installations that reflect your vision. All levels. Papermaking studio.
