While the world is busy trying to go paperless, this course preserves the "white art" -- introducing students to a variety of papermaking techniques, including preparing pulps, processing fiber, pulling and drying sheets, layering, pulp pigmentation and making watermarks. Students are encouraged to experiment with integrating materials such as plants and flowers into the paper. Participants work on many sheets and produce a variety of individual pieces of handmade paper. Papermaking is an exciting and relatively easy process, with many interesting applications for artists, craftspeople and educators.
