Handmade Paper for Printmakers
March 25, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$180
Students will learn the basic sheet forming and pulp painting in the first class which will allow them to make handmade paper for printing. To follow, they will also learn a number of techniques that will allow them to register colours in the pulp painting and sheet forming process to printing matrices. Basic relief carving, drypoint and collographs will be covered as well however students are encouraged to bring their own relief and intaglio matrices to this class if they already have ones they would like to experiment with. We will use high shrinkage pulp to form sheets and print on them, experimenting with prints that integrate with the paper in unusual ways, often with exciting three-dimensional results.
