Fiber to Function: Making Paper From the Found

OVERVIEW

This workshop will be focused on western tradition paper making. We will harvest local fibers and mix them with an abaca/bamboo blend to form sheets of paper that can be drawn on, bound into a book, or used for block prints. Each participant will have the opportunity to make pulp prints from images of their choosing, by spraying over-beaten pigmented cotton through a silk-screen. This is a very wet process so please wear appropriate clothing.
