– Using squirt bottles and eyedroppers for free hand drawing, discount students will work with finely beaten fibres to create “pulp paintings”, where the image is an integral part of the paper.
– Experienced paper artists will show you how to create unique artwork and decorative paper by cutting stencils, layering shapes and patterns and creating subtle washes of colour. This technique lends itself to loose gestural lines and washes.
– We will teach you a variation of Nepalese papermaking using a deckle box (a tall-sided mold) to create little paper paintings.
– As a fun wrap up to our course, we will pull out our large vacuum table and allow the group to collaboratively fill huge sheets of papers with whatever kinds of mark making, painting, stenciling and washes of colour they please!
