Regular Price:

$330.00

Pulp pouring is an ideal way to make large sheets of paper without breaking your back.  Pulp is poured onto the surface of the mould to form a sheet of paper, rather that dipped into a vat.  This process allows one to make large-scale paper without the use of vats.  The first day we will begin with the use of the pulp pouring mould, a fully self-contained system for sheet forming.  It is also useful in forming decorative sheets using multiple buckets of color and squeeze bottles.  On the second day we will explore the world of image making in hand papermaking using stencils, watercolor pencil transfers, and a technique known as pulp painting.  Students will create images on a base sheet using over-beaten pigmented flax.  The pulp can be applied using your hands, squeeze bottles, or paintbrushes. 

This workshop is appropriate for beginning as well as for more advanced papermakers.


Class meets each day from 10 am to 4 pm with a break for lunch.
