PAPERMAKING A to Z with Nicole Donnelly

Lawrence Art Center
Lawrence, KS                    
Sat / Sun, June 2 &3, 
9am-4pm (two days)
with Nicole Donnelly, Guest Artist

Papermaking A to Z is a down and dirty 2-day hand papermaking workshop. 

Students spend the first day in the wet studio.  Beginning with the construction of a mold and deckle, we'll learn the basics of hand papermaking: the tools and materials used, properties of various pulps, pulling sheets of paper, and embedding objects such as thread, ribbon, or natural plant material.  Students will create both art-weight and text-weight papers, and galoshes or water-resistant shoes are highly recommended. 

The second day is a dry working day, and will reveal the fruits of the previous day's labor - beautiful sheets of handmade paper.  The class will explore various ways of working with these dry sheets - incorporating drawing, printmaking, and bookmaking methods. (min 5/max 8 students) 

SU-AAR107: Saturday and Sunday,
