About this Workshop:

Pulp painting takes so many forms; let’s open up the possibilities! This workshop invites students to experience diverse techniques and create several pieces using the medium of hand-pigmented colored pulp. Experimenting in both 2D and 3D, learn about various pulp mixtures that work for different purposes; create painterly wet-in-wet layered pulp washes; cut and use stencils to repeat and register color shapes for an edition of prints; draw with colored pulp—and more.

Level: Intermediate—Introduction to Hand Papermaking or similar experience (6 hours) is required for this workshop. Knowledge of sheet-forming is necessary. 

Registration closes March 24, 2023. Material fees are included with your registration, though a list of additional items needed to be gathered/purchased will be sent with your confirmation.

Registration includes a $50 materials fee to cover consumable materials provided in class, including pulp, pigments, retention and formation aid, pellon, hardware cloth, and chicken wire. In addition, students will need to bring these supplies to class:

  • Shop apron or simple personal apron
  • Rubber boots or clogs, or other shoes with good tread (the floor will get wet and slippery in spots) 
  • X-acto knife
  • Several empty, clean plastic containers with lids (yogurt containers are a good size)
  • For casting: any item up to 12” long. It should be smooth (shiny metal, plastic, or ceramic) and something that can get wet
  • (optional) Soft-bristle artist’s paintbrush (any size – soft like a watercolor brush)
  • (optional) Rubber gloves if your hands are sensitive
