Papermaking Fall Concentration
October 3 – November 12 (six weeks)
REGISTRATION BEGINS ON MONDAY, MAY 17.
Paper Through Time
Focused on the history of papermaking, this workshop will trace the geographical spread of the craft. The first four weeks will be spent learning techniques from Nepal, Polynesia, Korea, Japan, India, and Europe. We’ll cover sheet forming along with the history, culture, and related craft traditions tied to papermaking of each region, including some tool making and natural dyeing. Students will then have two weeks to dive into their own projects expanding on the knowledge and inspiration gained from all the techniques covered. All levels.
