About this Workshop:

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!

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes September 10, 2024 and all materials are provided.

Registration includes all materials—just come ready to have fun! In addition, you may want to bring the following optional items for class:

  • Personal apron (we’ll have extras)—waterproof is best, but a heavy kitchen apron will do
  • Shoes with good traction—waterproof is best as the studio floor will get wet
  • Pen and notebook for taking any notes


Isabella Whitfield is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice encompasses site-responsive installation, papermaking, and sculpture. She makes meditative, performative work that considers the contradictory relationships between the environment, physical homeland, human labor, and historical object functionality. Whitfield’s projects often contain an act of collaborative generosity, inviting the viewer to become part of the work through physical immersion or participatory artistic creation. She has a Bachelors in Studio Art and Politics from the University of Virginia and has exhibited major works at New City Arts, Ruffin Gallery, the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum and InLight 2021 with 1708 Gallery. She recently completed residencies with the Visual Arts Center of Richmond and OxBow School of Art. Learn more about her work at www.isabellawhitfield.com.
