#4020 Western Papermaking: Pattern, Texture, Form - with Anne Covell, June 22-23

$ 250.00


This two-day course will introduce students to the fundamentals of Western papermaking with emphasis on techniques for creating patterns, textures, and sculptural forms through manipulation of pulp and substrate. We'll explore how to add inclusions and embedments in wet pulp, as well as how to texture sheets by casting on objects and using material restraints in the drying process. Additionally, we'll explore the use of high-shrinkage pulp in wrapping armatures, dipping objects, and contorting embedded forms as they dry. By working over two days, students will have the opportunity to see how materials dry and react by adding layers, building upon forms, and exploring processes in greater depth.

Western Papermaking: Pattern, Texture, Form. June 22-23, 2019

There is a $40 materials fee
