When: Mon., Aug. 14, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. 2017
Through August 18. Let’s take paper from 2D to 3D and from flat to full. Students will learn how to build armatures and moulds for creating three-dimensional paper forms. After an overview of basic papermaking techniques, students will learn how to make forms from wire, reed, mesh, and nylon, which act as supports for high shrinkage abaca and flax pulp. Students will also learn how to create moulds from alginate and how to use the vacuum table to create bas-relief paper pieces. Emphasis will be on working with a variety of pulp, from translucent and high shrinkage, to opaque and low shrinkage.
