Students will briefly learn about the history of German decorative paste papers, including important artists, techniques, and designs, then spend the rest of the class making paste papers for their own use using those techniques. Students will prepare colored paste with pre-made wheat paste and acrylic paint, wet out sheets of paper, then use brushes, combs, fingers, and stamps to create unique designs. Sheets will dry overnight and be available for pickup and use the next day.
Level: All levels welcome! – no experience necessary
