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:
