October 12, 9:30am to 3:30pm
A one-day introduction to the art of paste paper making. Paste paper dates back to the 16th century. Paste papers were first used in Germany, France, and Italy, and became very popular in the 18th and early 19th century and were introduced to the U.S. in the 1750's. A type of decorative paper making is shares a history with marbled paper but is less technically demanding and has a wider range of expression. Using acrylic paints and wheat paste participants will learn of the variability and versatility of this centuries-old art form. At the end of the workshop, participants will leave with an understanding the process, be equipped to produce papers at home as well as leave with a number of sheets of papers to use for projects or display. Workshop price includes paper, inks and all materials needed.
