Sculptural Papermaking – Sat., June 9, 10AM-4PM

In this workshop we will explore the process of making and using handmade paper to create three dimensional sculptural forms. If you’ve ever been curious about how to create organic and molded paper shapes to use for art and craft projects this workshop is for you! We’ll create armatures with sticks and wire and use abaca and other plant fiber handmade paper to cover our armatures and molds. Issues of transparency, opacity, and shrinkage will be discussed. At the end of the class students can either carry their wet projects home or leave them to dry in the studio and pick them up the following week. Great for those with some previous papermaking experience, though we will review basic sheet forming, and no experience is required.
Class size is limited to 5 students. Workshop fee is $100, and includes cost of materials. Contact Jane by email at info@janeingramallen.com or phone 857-234-2432 to register. Registration and deposit of $50 must be received by June 16, 2018, and the balance of $50 can be paid at the class.
