Abstract

This workshop is a hands-on learning experience about the artistic side of recycled paper and its creation. Participants will learn about: the colorful history of paper which has spanned through the worlds cultures, its origins, the technological advancements and its artistic appeal. I’ll introduce the basics of making paper. Paper has many different applications in architecture, art and interior design, such as wallpaper, screens, blinds and lampshades. Using techniques such as molding one can make almost anything - paper is so versatile its uses are only limited your own imagination. Due to the creation of paper many descriptions of our world have been recorded allowing us to share and learn from them. Paper has been used for many purposes, not just literature, but for war plans, the creation of the dollar bill, and of course, to give the ability to people at home of producing their own writing in physical form for hundreds of years. You'll learn what to do, and what not to do, using recycled materials in a green process that is chemical free. In informative workshop you will learn simple papermaking that you can do at home using gift wrap, and junk-mail. You'll be able to create papers you can use for cards, printmaking, drawing, painting, bookmaking, and more! At the end of this workshop you'll have all the skills you need to create all the artistic recycled paper your heart desires!
