Books & Paper Summer Session 4
Layering Paper: Creating Imagery
We’ll explore mark-making techniques for wet paper–including pulp painting, embedding, blow outs, stenciling, and watermarks–and how to layer them to create imagery. Students will learn to prepare a number of Eastern and Western fibers and to color them with pigments and natural dyes. With this expanded vocabulary of papermaking possibilities, students can create unique works, editions, or sheets that might later be worked on dry. No experience necessary, just a willingness to work hard in this physically demanding workshop. All levels. Papermaking studio.
