Books and Paper – Fall Weekend Session
October 21-23, 2022
Ann Marie Kennedy
Paper and Light
Making paper by hand allows for an investigation into its material nature and the interaction between paper and light. Starting with natural fibers such as flax and abaca, students will learn how to create translucent paper from overbeaten pulps. We’ll cover sheet forming techniques, including the use of a deckle box, and add content via stencils, collage, and texture. All levels.
