In this workshop participants will learn the basic principles of Western paper making and how it can be incorporated into their own printmaking practice. This workshop offers an introduction to the paper making process which includes making pulp and how to make individual sheets of paper. Students will then learn various techniques to make these papers unique to the artist such as pigmenting, pulp painting and stenciling. Once these handmade papers are dried, they can be used for printmaking techniques such as etching, monotypes and collagraphs.
