Learn an extremely accessible method of paper casting by casting directly on the form without the use of molds or pulp. Using found objects, unryu (mulberry) Japanese paper, and methyl cellulose, you will learn how to make hollow cast paper forms (both relief and three-dimensional). This is an extremely low-tech, cost-effective method that can be done at any kitchen table or home studio! You will be asked to bring your own found objects to cast.
Level: All levels welcome – no previous paper experience required
