End Paper: Handmade Paper and Paper-Pulp Painting with Lisa Pearce
In this workshop students learn to pull sheets of handmade paper and create paper-pulp paintings using a variety of different colored pulp using recycled paper. Each step of the papermaking process is demonstrated, while a bit of the science and history of paper is shared. You’ll leave with multiple sheets of paper that you can later draw or paint on or use to make journals as well as at least one paper-pulp painting.
