Pulp Painting: Papermaking for Painters
Get creative with colour! Learn the secrets of pigments for colouring fibre and create coloured paper and images with pulp. This workshop features a range of different tools to create colourful lines, washes, textures and shapes in handmade paper.
In this course, you will be using squirt bottles and eyedroppers for freehand drawing. You will work with finely beaten fibres to create “pulp paintings”, where the image is an integral part of the paper. Napalese papermaking using a deckle box (a tall-sided mold) will also be made to create little paper paintings.
In addition to learning the fundamentals, 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.
Participants will leave this course with 25-35 handmade custom sheets of paper and enough knowledge to continue exploring paper at our intermediate level.
