Join us for a fun evening playing with pulp! You’ll learn the basic techniques needed to cast paper pulp to create lightweight relief sculptures and experiment with both sheet casting and pouring methods. Handmade and everyday objects will be used as molds. Pigments and inclusions will be incorporated to enhance the texture of our paper sculptures. This is a great introduction to sculptural papermaking for anyone interested in pushing pulp into the third dimension!
