Rethinking Paste Papers

RETHINKING PASTE PAPERS

 

 

 

Instructor: Jackie Wygant
Skill Level: All Levels
Materials Fee: $26.00
Length of workshop: 1 day

 

 

Workshop description: 

We will explore the possibilities for making unique multi-layer paste papers using clear, lightly tinted, highly colorful, opaque and metallic methyl cellulose pastes. We will also use underlying shape and texture stencils for rubbings, frottage and scraffito effects for some of the layers. During the final hour of the class, traditional combs, stamps and rollers will be available for further exploration. No experience is necessary, but this is not a traditional beginning paste paper class. The instructor will provide twenty sheets of various colored and textured papers for each student to use for the multi- layer process. Students are welcome to bring additional paper which must be strong enough to withstand wetting and no larger than 14” X 20”.
