Layered in the fibers of handmade paper are color, texture and personality. You may find ribbon, thread, seeds, flower petals or fortunes from fortune cookies. The possibilities are almost endless! This class is designed to take handmade paper to the next level and transform each unique piece into beautiful, textured art and elegant, functional crafts.
Students will hand-bind a personalized journal, create a small set of stationery, explore introductory printmaking techniques for stamps to be used with their stationery, and create an art piece ready for framing - all using colorful, textured handmade paper.
Each student should bring 10 individual sheets of handmade paper, roughly 8.5 by 11 inches, either purchased or handmade by the student. Please wear comfortable clothes, an apron, and bring snacks, lunch, and drinking water. Students are also welcome to bring any materials to utilize in their stationery or in the creation of their art-piece.
This is a great follow-up class for those who have taken Handmade Paper Introduction, or if you want to learn how to make unique pieces utilizing hand-made paper.
