Want to “green” up your art practice? We will use scrap and misprinted screenprints and other papers as our raw paper material, cast them into molds and/or create embossed papers. We will experiment with using this raw material to create color effects to incorporate into our new paper. Once you learn the basics you can easily recycle your own prints for more personalized color effects in your papermaking.
Level: All levels welcome!
Registration closes January 12, 2022 to allow time for the instructor to prepare materials. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including a variety of plastic molds, saran wrap, flexicarve blocks and carving tools, recycled paper pulp using scrap screenprints, and extra colored paper for color separation.
