We will delve into surface design and explore three different approaches to creating beautiful decorative papers. We will begin by exploring color, layering and patternmaking through the spontaneous joy of paste papers. Then we will turn to traditional Japanese techniques, delving into the contemplative reveries of suminagashi marbling, and discovering sekkazome, a Japanese fold and dye method that result in beautiful kaleidoscopic patterns. At the end of the workshop, you’ll leave with a giant stack of stunning papers to use in your books and other projects. All levels welcome.
This workshop uses entirely non-toxic materials. All materials will be supplied.
