About this Workshop:

Let’s get pulpy! In this Make+Take, we’ll use handy dandy pour molds to create unique handmade paper. We will play with different textures and colors by adding flowers, threads, leaves or any other natural or man-made objects that can be added to the paper. You just need your creativity to develop beautifully designed paper that you can use for other projects or share with others. 

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes July 9, 2024 and includes all materials.

CLASS MATERIALS LIST:

Registration includes all needed materials for class. Students are advised to bring the following optional materials:

  • Personal apron (waterproof or even cooking apron) – we’ll have extras
  • Shoes with good tread that can take some water (the studio floor will get wet!)
  • A collection of materials to create texture: leaves, flowers, paper scraps, string, and other flat, decorative items. The instructor will provide more detailed instructions on what you can collect.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR:

​​Zofia Chamera earned her BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2020 and her MFA in Studio Art from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in 2022. Chamera’s foundation is in traditional mediums such as clay, wax, and bronze, however she recently began exploring handmade paper and how it can be applied to sculpture. She is constantly pushing the structural boundaries of this medium and with that challenging the conflict of fine art versus craft. While studying at PAFA, Chamera worked as the papermaking shop monitor and a graduate teaching assistant for figure modeling and many other courses. Her work has been shown in the National Sculpture Society Gallery in Manhattan, New York as well as local galleries in Baltimore, MD and Philadelphia, PA. Most notably, she was selected as one of seven artists to participate in the Lucca Biennale 2022 Outdoor Exhibition in Tuscany, Italy. Learn more about her work at www.zofiachamera.com.
