In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use stencils and found objects to make beautiful lace-like paper!
Paper blowouts are made by placing a stencil on top of a freshly formed sheet of paper and then using water to spray or blow out the pulp around the object. What’s left is a surprising image created by the stencil. Layers of imagery can be created on existing sheets or individual doily-like pieces of paper can be made with this method. Students will leave with 10-15 sheets of unique art paper pieces.
Level: Intermediate – Introduction to Hand Papermaking or similar workshop experience (6 hours) required.
