Due to so many wanting to take the March 19 workshop, I decided to offer it again in April! Join me in my Santa Rosa studio for some indoor and outdoor EXTREME and Experimental Papermaking using a variety of pulps such as kozo (paper mulberry bark), cotton blue jeans, sisal, flax and abaca as well as at least one plant fiber gathered locally.
We will do such things as make really big paper using pouring methods, make really thin but strong paper using Japanese techniques, make thick sculptural cast paper, burn handmade paper using a flame retardant, make holes, tear and shred paper, make paper that moves and produces sounds and blend some strange and exotic pulps for special effects. Come prepared for some extreme experimental papermaking to produce unique handmade paper for artwork of all kinds. This workshop is suited for beginning and experienced papermakers and promises to challenge you to stretch and expand your ideas about papermaking.
Class size is limited to 4 people, and all must be vaccinated. All Covid protocols in effect will be followed.
