BOOKS & PAPER SUMMER SESSION 5
JULY 16–28, 2023
Informed but not bound by history and tradition, this workshop will start with an investigation of Western, Eastern, and hybrid sheet-forming processes as a springboard for delving into personal approaches to paper. A variety of materials, methods, tools, equipment, and their application will move us toward optimizing particular qualities of our papers. We’ll consider fiber type, preparation, color, texture, shape, and dimension. With wet lamination, layering, inclusions, pulp painting, reduction, and hand manipulation, we’ll move to define our “truth” to the medium. Whether as substrate or object, our paper will highlight personal production and our new capabilities and allow us to see our relationship to the field as a whole. All levels. Papermaking studio.
