It’s great to be back in the USA after 3 months in Taiwan. All of the art projects there went well, but it is good to be home and planning some activities nearer home.
I wanted to let you know about the class in Sculptural Papermaking I am teaching this July at Sitka Center for Art & Ecology in Otis, Oregon. Sitka Center is on the beautiful central Oregon coast, and it has great facilities and really nice people. My class runs from July 13 – 16.
You can get all the information and sign up online at https://www.sitkacenter.com/classes/detail.lasso?recid=2163
The class currently has 3 people registered but we need 2 more to make it go. Please check it out and sign up or contact other friends who might be interested. This class will really be fun and a chance to learn all about 3-D papermaking. Let me know if you have any questions, and please pass this on to anyone you know who might be interested.

Explore different fibers and techniques for three-dimensional forms and sculptural
installations with papermaking. Design and create a paper-based sculpture while
sampling a variety of techniques including casting in molds and over forms, using
armatures and sculpting pulp-like clay. The workshop will also cover various
pouring techniques and ways of working with pulp over sculptural screening and
sewing net forms for paper pulp. Various finishes and additives for paper pulp as
well as different fibers will be used in the workshop. Each participant will design
and make a handmade paper sculpture during the workshop and do several
samples that can be developed further.
Thank you and hope to see you in the workshop at Sitka Center.
